You are cordially invited to a …
Picket Pantages Party !!
Thursday, Sept 8th 11:00 am
NE entrance to Tinseltown (Pender & Taylor streets)
Come one! Come all!
Residents and supporters of the DTES are invited to a picket party outside Tinseltown, the location of Marc Williams’ Sequel 138 office and presentation centre which will soon be opening to sell high end condos in the middle of the Downtown Eastside.
This action will launch a boycott campaign against Williams’ planned condo development at 138 E. Hastings St., the site of the old Pantages theatre. We will be gathering to support an ongoing effort to encourage potential condo buyers to refuse to purchase condos in the DTES, where their investment will contribute to the displacement of low-income residents in the neighbourhood.
Meet at 11:00 am outside the Pender Street entrance to the Tinseltown Mall (aka International Village). Bring signs, placards and your enthusiasm for defending the community against gentrification. Supporting organizations are strongly encouraged to bring banners to create a visible display of solidarity with DTES residents.
Who: You, your organizations and your friends
What: Picket Marc Williams’ office in Tinseltown
When: Thursday, Sept 8th, 11:00 am
Where: North East entrance to the Tinseltown Mall / International Village (corner of Pender and Taylor)
