This exciting 3-day convergence weekend will include:
Mass Seeding of the city with Occupy Gardens leading the way
Rallies and Marches throughout the city on topics such as: 1. Economy and Environment and why our current system is unprepared, 2. Leadership and Values diminished and concrete ways to move forward, 3. Marches across the city to show at-risk areas and what's happening...
*** Rallies: will be strategic panels and offer a large audience the ability to see and hear, by use of posters, signs, megaphones/mics and painting pictures and posing critical questions in an organized and respectful way. s
Informal Critical Workshops for how to take action on topics such as: 1. Legal Literacy for a day of action, 2. Media Literacy - how to assess what the media will see, 3. Tactical and Strategic Mobilization
Healthy, local food at our Food Market throughout the weekend - provided by citizens of Toronto and supported by serious local grassroots groups
The final day of the convergence will present: The Market of The Diaspora: Music, Movement and Conversation - exploring the cycles of oppression in our communities of colour
Together we will show Toronto what solutions can look like! We will be making our mark and going into areas of need and taking up LOTS of space there - identifying what is wrong with the support systems there and what is missing? We need YOU to make this happen!
See you on April 27, 28, 29th!
