COAST SALISH TERRITORY - The 7th Annual DTES Women’s Housing March against poverty took place in the Downtown Eastside this afternoon. The crowd called for housing for low-income people and as well as homes, childcare and healthcare for all. They marched under banners demanding Affordable Housing, Homes Not Pipelines, Homes Not Jails and Poverty is Not a Crime.

The annual event was organized by the Downtown Eastside Women's Centre Power of Women Group and co-hosted by Women Against Violence Against Women.

Speakers called for  "housing, childcare, and healthcare for all low-income residents in the DTES. We want no more evictions, no more displacement, and no more gentrification in our neighourhood.

"We know that the growing number of cops and condos in the DTES is part of a larger pattern to destroy and privatize neighourboods, communities, and the land. Meanwhile, women in the DTES continue to face the brunt of poverty, displacement, violence and apprehension."
