This Saturday July 9th, The Volcano and Alliance Against Displacement are supporting and encouraging people to respond to VANDU’s call for a Day of Action against homelessness. This week, the Province’s second injunction attempt to displace Victoria’s Super InTent City has come to fruition; VANDU’s action could not come at a more opportune time. What better response as Coleman’s cops prepare to descend on the homeless who refuse to be cowed in institutionalizing “supportive” housing than to create more spaces of confrontation with the Province’s austerity policies? We will march in Saturday’s action in Vancouver (and others being planned surreptitiously in other places) to stand in solidarity with the leaders in Super InTent City and to declare that the displacement, housing and homelessness crisis is an emergency in every community. We are fighting back! Join us! ~ Eds.
