Ten Year Tent City 

At 9am on Friday April 28th, one week before the 2017 BC election and two weeks after the release of the highest homeless count in Vancouver history, a dozen homeless people and a group of supporters took over a city owned empty lot, founding a new tent city. Dubbed the “10 Year Tent City” because this lot was also taken as a tent city in 2007 and while the government promised housing, the lot still stands empty and homelessness has boomed.

Conditions of Struggle education series

Alliance Against Displacement organizes an education series on topics suggested by collective members. This Spring, Alliance Against Displacement is holding our fourth Conditions of Struggle class series on Sex/Gender Problems and Powers in Anti-Displacement Struggle.
