#SQUAT2SURVIVE COVID-19! Unhoused and underhoused communities seize the vacant North Surrey Recreation Centre in Surrey Centre to create and fight for homes safer than the streets, shelters, and modular housing that are becoming COVID-19 hothouses
On April 1st, homeless activists launched the Hothouse Squat. They call for for poor and homeless communities all over the province to take over vacant buildings as part of the #SQUAT2SURVIVE movement, in an act of militant self-defense from COVID-19.
You can't self-isolate in shelters, SROs, modular housing, or on the streets. By taking over vacant buildings, we can immediately shelter ourselves from the many threats of poverty – of which COVID-19 is just one. Support poor and homeless communities to #Squat2Survive!
Homeless activists are calling a press conference to demand that the government redirect resources to poor communities, so that they can take care of their own health and safety in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Red Braid is distributing information, offering resources, and organizing poor and homeless communities. We encourage others to download, adapt, and distribute the flyer in their own communities.
Our organization exists to spur on and express the revolutionary movements of working class and Indigenous peoples. This means that our practice of democracy is rooted in our social bases. We understand and analyze the movement of our social bases as a starting point to discuss and decide what to do.
The #CoquitlamRailBlockade is part of a Wet’suwet’en defence movement that is spreading as Indigenous nations exercising their sovereign control over their territories stop rail line traffic
Blocking the Port of Vancouver communicates the powerful message that the Wet’suwet’en nation is not alone. Our growing movement must become more powerful to break the hold that corporations, police, and colonial courts have over our lives and relations between Indigenous nations and non-Indigenous people.
We are inviting you to join the movement: as a sustaining donor you will be part of the foundation that this movement is accountable to, making your donation political.
