YES TO FEB 14TH MEMORIAL MARCH! NO TO OLYMPICS!

It has been brought to our attention that the City of Vancouver, Olympic officials, and the Vancouver 2010 Integrated Security Unit are trying to change the historic Feb 14, 2010, March for Murdered and Missing Women in order to ensure flow of Olympic traffic down Hastings Street.

As residents of the DTES and supporters of the Memorial March, we completely oppose any change in date, time, or route of the Memorial March. This March has been happening for 18 years to honour our sisters who die each year due to the violence of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual abuse. It is something far more significant and sacred than the Olympic Games, which has already increased poverty, homelessness, and policing in our neighbourhood. The government is spending billions on a circus, while putting people aside.

We, the women in the Downtown Eastside and our supporters, demand that:
There be no attempts to change or control our Feb 14th Memorial March
Not a single person be forcibly removed, evicted, or displaced from their homes in the Downtown Eastside and any other community due to the Olympics.

    It is important for Olympic visitors to view a true and uncensored Vancouver. The memorial march tactfully addresses a dark facet of our local history (and present), and could serve as a great learning experience for those who lack awareness of Vancouver'
