Concerned citizens gathered once again at Harbourside Park and marched up Water Street in a show of solidarity with the student movement in Quebec (and to denounce the plethora of undemocratic, unconstitutional, and draconian laws that have been passed recently). The omnibus bill c-38, Charest's Loi 78, and Newfoundland and Labrador's access to information Law 29. Get informed, get activated, and get in the streets. The time is now!
Please circulate this message far and wide.
JOIN US FOR A HUGE CASSEROLES (Pots and Pans)
NIGHT ON WEDNESDAY, JULY 11TH, AT 8:00 P.M., IN SOLIDARITY WITH QUÉBEC STUDENTS AND CANADIANS THROUGHOUT THIS COUNTRY WHO HAVE HAD ENOUGH.
Show disapproval for Québec's Law 78, which restricts Canadians' civil liberties. Let those in power know that Canadians are paying attention! We will stand in solidarity with the students of Québec, but this is about much more. This is a stand against Harper: cuts to DFO and the fisheries, the "in and out" scandal, lying about voter suppression, the F-35 debacle, muzzling scientists, opposition to environmental groups, union breaking, the tar sands, cuts to refugee healthcare, Bill C-10 (the Omnibus crime bill. (http://ccla.org/omnibus-crime-bill-c-10/) currently being criticized by the Supreme Court of Canada), C38, social injustice, neoliberalism, ... and Dunderdale's Law 29.
