Please join us to celebrate 2 WEEKS OF DIGNITY, HOPE, AND FREEDOM!

58 W. Hastings, Across Army & Navy
Meal, Drummers, Entertainment. All Welcome!
BACKGROUND: The Olympic Tent Village was established on Monday February 15 on the empty lot at 58 West Hastings. The lot is owned by Olympic sponsor Concord Pacific, which has plans to build 160 condos on the site. Before being liberated as the Tent Village, the lot was being used as a VANOC parking lot.
Instead of empty lots and empty promises, the Olympic Tent Village calls for:
1. Real action to end homelessness now
2. End condo development and displacement in the Downtown Eastside
3. End discriminatory ticketing, police harassment, and all forms of criminalization of poverty
