Rally 4 Egypt: The struggle for justice continues

Saturday, February 5, 2011 - 12:00pm - 2:00pm

49° 16' 46.146" N, 123° 7' 0.8076" W

Join in this Vancouver rally for democracy and justice in Egypt:

After the fall of Ben-Ali in Tunisia and the revolution against Mubarak in Egypt, the revolution is spreading to all Arab countries. The peoples' movement is basically a call for justice. It is a peaceful struggle for economic and social development via democracy.

The defiant and deceptive actions of Mubarak with the pathetic stand of some of the western governments in general and the U.S. in particular vis-a-vis the legitimate aspirations of the Egyptian people are unacceptable and counter-productive.

Members of the local Tunisian community and supporters will rally outside the central branch of the Vancouver Public Library.

"We will be joining members of the Tunisian Diaspora and other supporters in rallying to support the movement for democracy in Tunisia which has inspired the whole world," said Dr. Younes Alila, a UBC Professor.

The dictator Ben Ali fled Tunisia last week after sustained mass protests against his decades-long rule. Ben Ali's family has Canadian connections and investments. In Montreal, rallies have been held outside his son-in-law's mansion.

"Our Water, Our Lives"

Tell the McGuinty Government to protect our water!

Maude Barlow, Council of Canadians | Debbe Crandall, STORM | Josh Garfinkel, Earthroots Fred Hahn, CUPE | Stephen Ogden, Site 41 activist | Jane Zednick, SOCM | and more

We are feeling the effects of the global water crisis in Ontario. Loopholes and a lack of regulatory willpower have left even the Oak Ridges Moraine hurting from water shortages. People are mobilizing to protect their water from the developers and Big Industry that have unlimited access to the government and unlimited funds to get what they want.
