Alliance Against Displacement has begun organizing in Surrey with a focus on homeless communities gathered on 135A Street, known as “the Strip.” The constant presence of the RCMP constructs the Strip as a site of criminality. Not only are poor people subjected to government theft of their belongings (including medications, ID, treasured photos, family ashes, etc.), they are routinely under surveillance and targeted for potential bylaw infractions and criminal activity.

Every few months, the Alliance Against Displacement organizes an education series called Conditions of Struggle. The series is open to anyone, and we especially encourage those we have worked with in community settings to join. Each series is on a given theme, suggested by members of our collective. Each series consists of three classes held once a week or once every two weeks, depending on the groups’ time commitments and schedules.
