Dear Peace Coalitioners

Occupy Wall St has become a solidarity movement around the world. Across Canada on October 15, there will be groups of people occupying public space and echoing the dissatisfaction of the 99% with 1% rule for the 1%.

Join the 99% calling for change. We don’t know what this change looks like yet, but it’s in our hearts and determination. Join the People’s Assembly of Victoria. Find out about it.
