Those without homes are at the greatest risk during this time and the government has provided no viable housing options for them, despite the numbers of vacant buildings and empty hotels in Vancouver each day. It is unacceptable that attempts made by homeless activists and their allies to squat a Surrey rec center on April 1st were met with violence from the RCMP. We stand in solidarity with houseless folks and demand that the government provide adequate support for us all, and not punish those who meet their own needs however they can.

One way to support the initiatives of houseless folks and their allies is to get involved with Red Braid Alliance and donate to their squat to survive fund.
