July Organizing Meeting

Join your neighbours in the struggle against the root cause of the demovictions crisis in Metrotown: colonialism and capitalism. On Tuesday, July 10th from 6:00pm – 8:00pm, at the Burnaby Neighbourhood House across from the Metrotown Skytrain Station (third floor room), we will come together to continue to fight against profit-driven displacement and colonial property laws. Snacks, tea and coffee will be provided. Here is a tentative agenda for the meeting:

  1. Territorial Acknowledgement
  2. Check-in
  3. Reflecting on Paint-in
  4. One year anniversary of Metrotown Plan passing action planning: Questions to be answered and tasks to be assigned – What will this look like (direct action?, film?, food?, media conference? Or all of these things?), When will this take place? (do we stick with exact anniversary or move it to a weekend?), Call-out and political framing preparation, Outreach
  5. Newsletter development

This organizing meeting is taking place on the occupied territories of the Qayqayt, Kwikwetlem, Skwxwú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish), səl̓ilwətaɁɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) peoples.

Hope to see you all there!
