What started on Monday, May 27, as a peaceful protest at the İstanbul’s Gezi Park to prevent the destruction of the public park for a gentrification project, has turned into a country-wide mass demonstration after brutal police attack. The resistance against the police violence and the increasingly authoritarian AKP government persists for more than a month now.
Join us to learn more about what is happening in Turkey, what caused the ongoing mass demonstrations, where this movement is going and to discuss how we act in solidarity with the struggle of the people of Turkey.
Dear Mr. Trump,
It has come to my attention that you were in Vancouver this week to announce your new high-end hotel / condo tower in Coal Harbour, near where I work. My fellow citizens and I decided not to picket your event. Instead, I opt for polite correspondence, to respectfully inform you that we are sufficiently supplied with luxury condominiums at present and require no further units. We'll call if we're running low.
Plus, there is a lien on the place. Just ask the original inhabitants.
