DTES Hunger Strike Celebration and Feast

by wendy pedersen

Come to the feast to celebrate the outcomes of the Hunger Strike.  This is especially for people who have supported the pickets and supported the hunger strike but others are welcome to come too.  If you have the means, bring some food.  The hunger strike tactic grew directly out of anti-gentrification picket at Pidgin Restaurant.  At the dinner, we'll talk more about next steps in our fight against gentrification.  This is the 11th hour for the DTES becasue the city is about to rezone the Downtown Eastside for Woodward's style projects from Carrall to Clarke Drive.  Support the Pidgin picket.  Help us expand them to new sites.  The PEOPLE'S POWER IS ON THE STREETS!

It was good tonight, the feast was good but there werent enough people, the the flowers for Homeless D were a nice idea, especialy the cala lily though it looked like it was snatched from a funeral home.
