@ TOUR OF WESTMOUNT: THEY ARE RICH BECAUSE WE ARE
POOR!
An anarchist march through Montreal's most affluent
neighborhood

===> Time: 6:30 PM
===> Date: Saturday, May 17th, 2003
===> Meet: The green-space by Lionel Groulx Metro

Just up the hill from the
traditionally-working-class-but-rapidly-gentrifying
neighborhoods of St-Henri and Little Burgundy -- the
location of this years' Montreal Anarchist Bookfair --
lies Westmount, renown as one of Montreal's most
affluent enclaves. The verdant hills of Westmount are
home to some of the most distinctive figures of the
Canadian bourgeoisie, including Brian Mulroney, Jean
Charest and the Bronfman family.

On Saturday, May 17th, CLAC Logement invites you to
join us for "@ Tour of Westmount: They are rich
because we are poor." This anarchist march through
Westmount will allow the presence of anarchists and
anti-authoritarians to be experienced not only by
Bookfair attendees but also by Montreal's political
and economic elite as they relax at home.

Bring your flags and your banners of resistance!
And bring your running boots and your water bottles
too, cause it's going to be a long walk uphill!

For more info: claclogement@yahoo.ca or 514.409.2049.

And don't miss the following events, also on Saturday,
May 17th...

===> The Fourth Annual Montreal Anarchist Bookfair

The Fourth Annual Montreal Anarchist Bookfair will
take place earlier on Saturday, May 17th at CEDA,
2515, rue Delisle (Metro Lionel-Groulx), from 10AM-6PM.
The Bookfair will bring together more than 50
booksellers, collectives and distributors from all
over North America as well as the Federation Anarchiste
from France. Workshops, films and more! Open to
anarchists and non-anarchists alike! Free!

===> CLAC Logement Workshop: "Resisting Gentrifying
Forces: Past and Present Anarchist Struggles for the
Right to Decent Housing".

During the day, members of CLAC Logement will be
facilitating a workshop entitled "Resisting
Gentrifying Forces: Past and Present Anarchist
Struggles for the Right to Decent Housing". It will
include a walking tour of the neighborhood of
St-Henri, a traditionally poor and working class
neighborhood in the throes of gentrification, situated
below Westmount.

All are welcome to participate! Meet at CEDA, 2515,
rue Delisle at 2 PM.
