OCAP WOMEN OF ETOBICOKE DEMONSTRATION WEDNESDAY

REMINDER THIS WEDNESDAY AUGUST 30

Please join the OCAP women of Etobicoke:


If the government can spend 17+ million on a new police station why don't they spend money on the youth?

The City gives more money to police than they do to our kids' recreation centre and programs. The kids are just sitting around with nothing to do, meanwhile they get harassed by the cops.

The basket ball court at Mount Olive housing complex has been out of order since the summer of 2005. If the city won't fix it up, we will.

Join us as we demonstrate against the police and city on August 30th.

IF YOU ARE COMING FROM DOWNTOWN: MEET AT 9:45 AM AT KIPLING SUBWAY STATION,UPSTAIRS.


If you wish to go directly meet at Mount Olive basketball court (Mount Olive housing project is just north of Finch, West off Kipling)

10 AM: Demonstration

3pm:BBQ and court make over.


For more information please contact the OCAP Women of Etobicoke 416.749.7770

The OCAP Women of Etobicoke organizes to fight poor people's daily struggles to survive, and against the governments responsible for that poverty. Based in North Etobicoke, one of the city's poorest and largely immigrant suburbs the organization is run by Somali mothers living in the area.

For those living in North Etobicoke police abuse is nothing new, but in recent months in the name of so called anti-gang measures, the largest police operations in Toronto's history have been carried out in these communities. Actions on August 30th are a part of the OCAP Women of Etobicoke's everyday resistance against Toronto police racism and violence.
