Outside the Port Coquitlam Courthouse | 2620 Mary Hill Road
STOP POLICE HARASSMENT OF HOMELESS PEOPLE IN THE TRI-CITIES! BUILD HOMES NOW!
Homeless people in Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, and Port Moody are pushed into hiding by the “Tri-Cities Model” of dealing with homelessness by disappearing homeless people. Police and bylaw officers use a zero-tolerance policy for “loitering” to harass and steal the belongings of any poor person visible in public. Homeless people live in constant danger of wildlife attack, vulnerable to the weather, and, in hidden isolation, with the risk of overdose death.
Support the Tri-Cities homeless! Come to a rally to say no to the Tri-Cities Model of disappearing the poor, no to police harassment of homeless people, no to social isolation and overdose death, and yes to homeless power and homes for all!
This rally is taking place on the unceded and occupied territories of the Kwikwetlem people.
