This coming Tuesday, as part of the 99% Film Fest, there will be a screening of a documentary titled The Right To Sleep, which recounts the experiences of B.C. social justice activist David Arthur Johnston and his campaign to affirm the right of homeless people to be able to pitch tents and sleep in public parks.
David was recently in St. John's, spreading the word about his campaign and providing information about his court battles and his VICTORY in a Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms case on this very issue.
Join us Tuesday at 7 pm in the Arts Building of Memorial University (room 1043) for the screening. For a bit more information on David Arthur Johnston, check out his write-up on the Right to Sleep, and also a recent article in the Independent on David's visit to St. John's.
