Be ready for emergency action at the Sequel 138 sales centre!

–  Boycott Downtown Eastside condos  –  Solidarity with low-income DTES  residents against displacement & homelessness  –

On the day the Sequel 138 sales centre opens
(Pender Street side at Abbott, in front of McDonald’s)

On April 23 the Vancouver Development Permit Board approved a condo tower on the 100-block of East Hastings. Since then the owner and developer of the Pantages site has been bragging that his “Sequel 138” condo sales centre is going to open soon.

The Downtown Eastside Not for Developers Coalition is calling for an emergency action the day the Sequel sales centre opens (located on the second floor of Tinseltown Mall).

What you can do

Fill out the Pantages pledge form in order to get on the contact list for this action. You can print it, fill it out, and drop if off at the VANDU office (384 E Hastings) for Aiyanas, type out your answers and contact info and email it to, or call one of these contacts: Ivan 604-781-7346, Greg 604-809-1053, Aiyanas 604-315-8766

There is a good chance that the presentation centre will open with very short notice so contact us with your contact information to receive the alert when we take action.

Spread this news around and see if others would like to know when emergency action will be called to stop the sales of this destructive condo project. This is an important test because the city has approved this project despite unanimous local-community opposition. We need to send a message that the DTES low-income community won’t be displaced without a fight, and that this community has friends and allies who are also ready to act.
