Event Description

URGENT PROTEST AND SLEEPOVER! There are less than two weeks left before the July 27th City Council meeting where the council aims to introduce a policy to be put into law laying out how much the city will be investing in animal exploitation. There are reports that the city intends to reduce animal exploitation funding by 50% by 2024. That’s so insulting to everyone who suffers at the hands of that industry so we’ll protest at the Mayor’s house this Tuesday at 6pm then grill some food, enjoy a family film screening and have a sleepover outside his home before marching to City Hall for another protest at 9:15 am Wednesday morning.
Please join us for the protest, the food/movie, the sleepover and the morning protest at city or join us for whichever parts you can! If sleeping over, please bring everything you might need to spend a night outside. If you don’t have any gear you might need, consider a one day rental from Sports Basement or ask here or ask friends if anyone has gear to lend.
Thank you so much for fighting to encourage the city to do more than just the bare minimum that other cities have already done in recent years. Animal exploitation is 100% unjust so 50% divestment is unacceptable.
