Occupy Nanaimo: Day 47 – Urgent Appeal!


“On Thursday December 1st at 09:00 (am) the Corporation of the City of Nanaimo will begin legal proceeding, seeking an injunction to evict Occupy Nanaimo from Diana Krall Plaza.

We have been peaceful and as compliant as we could. We have done everything short of pack up and go.

The City’s offer was for a one hour, bi-weekly forum in which the public can come and speak with us. As a consensus we respectfully declined. Our message is not finished and now is the time that we call for our brothers and sisters to come to Nanaimo. Come to our Occupy.

We are still here, we are still strong, and we are still in solidarity. We make this call out to everyone everywhere. Come to Diana Krall Plaza. Come and Occupy. Bring a tent or just your time. Stay for as long as you can.

We need support now! Let us show them that we cannot be pushed around. If you occupied elsewhere and it has been shut down, come Occupy with us. If you haven’t gotten the chance yet, come Occupy with us!

As evictions spread across Canada we need to stand up together against this inequality.  So please join us in Diana Krall Plaza, Nanaimo.”

Occupy Nanaimo, Occupy Canada, Occupy Everywhere.
