Maywood community BBQ against gentrification! Saturday, July 6th – 4:00 to 7:00PM
|Stop Demovictions is planning our next summer BBQ! |
Join us on Saturday, July 6th from 4 to 7PM at Maywood Park, 6480 McKay avenue
This event is free and everyone is welcome!
Hotdogs and drinks will be provided; all other contributions are welcomed.
|As we live, work and organize in Metrotown, gentrification is becoming visible everywhere. A neighbourhood historically accessible to Indigenous people, low income workers, new immigrants, and refugees is quickly turning into a luxury living and shopping district for the rich. Experiences of displacement, heightened racism and daily stress around looming evictions are experienced by everyone living in Metrotown’s low-rise buildings.|
Intracorp is a corporation that has already displaced hundreds of tenants from their Metrotown homes. As they advertise their luxury condos next to Maywood park, we want to gather in the park to celebrate the vibrant and diverse community of people who have made Maywood their home for decades.
So come to Maywood Park on Saturday, July 6th from 4 to 7PM for a community BBQ to get to know our neighbours, share food and talk about our experiences of living in Metrotown. Come celebrate our community as we continue to fight for our homes and our neighbourhood.
This event is organized by Stop Demovictions Burnaby, on the unceded Indigenous territories of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil Waututh nations.
