Ma yDay International Workers Day / Free BBQ / Folk Show / Street Party
7:00 pm - 11:30 pm
Commercial Dr & Charles St
On May 1st, International Workers’ Day, come out for the 4th straight anti-capitalist, anti-authoritative party to celebrate this city’s grassroots resistance to gentrification, capitalism, and pipelines!5 years ago hundreds of people converged at Grandview Park on occupied and unceded Coast Salish Territory to protest its gentrifying redevelopment. This May 1st we are meeting at the park to take it back for a night, and to say that despite efforts to force people out of their homes we’re still here.
As we reclaim space on Commercial Drive, we are standing in solidarity with the indigenous land defenders resisting, LNG pipelines on their own territory and the Burnaby Mountain caretakers resisting Kinder Morgan. In the face of increasing criminalization of radicals (Bill C-51, the anti-mask bill, etc), solidarity with all those fighting for self-determination is more important than ever.
7pm Free BBQ / Folk Show

Meet at Grandview Park (Commercial at Charles St) at 8pm. Bring tha ruckus.
