Parade to stop demovictions and celebrate the community resistance of the anti-imperial squat
We started our protest occupation – the anti-imperial squat – of the demovicted apartment building at 5025 Imperial Street in Metrotown on Saturday July 9th. We lasted for 12 days largely because of the powerful support of the community.
The occupation is over but the struggle to protect peoples homes and communities continues. A process of mass demoviction (eviction through demolition) is underway in Metrotown, and thousands of people will be demovicted in Metrotown in coming years unless we unite and fight back against displacement.
Come to a parade to celebrate community and send the message to Mayor Corrigan and all levels of government that “hell no, we won’t go.”
Wear bright colours and or traditional regalia.
Stop Demovictions Burnaby acknowledges that our anti-displacement struggle is taking place on the dispossessed and unceded lands of the Tsleil-Waututh, Kwikwetlem, and Qayqayt Coast Salish nations.
