Join the On to Ottawa Caravan this summer!
The People’s Social Forum will take place this summer, August 21-24 in Ottawa. This promises to be an unprecedented convergence of social movements and activists from Quebec, First Nations and across Canada. The Social Forum will be an opportunity to share experiences, to learn, and to strategize and build practical alliances and coalitions in the struggle against the Harper government.
To help get delegates to the Social Forum in Ottawa, we are organizing an ‘On to Ottawa Caravan’ from BC to Ottawa this summer. The Caravan is about connecting with a proud piece of our movement history that will also help to re-energize a commitment to activism for social and environmental justice.
The Caravan is tentatively scheduled to leave from Vancouver on August 15, stopping in towns and cities across the prairies and Ontario, picking up more delegates on the way to the Social Forum. We are aiming to send hundreds of people to the Forum from BC. If you have the means, or belong to an organization that could sponsor delegates’ travel, any contributions you could make would be greatly appreciated. On to Ottawa!
Registration for the People’s Social Forum is now open – see the website: http://
