At 4pm Monday June 21st Town Hall (Notre Dame and Jacques Cartier Blvd.)
Right now in Centre-Sud, Montreal, the city has launched a class-based
attack on the people on the streets through the new policing policy
"l'optimisation la police de la cartier." Divisions 21 and 22 have
commenced a campaign of harassment, issuing hundreds upon hundreds of
tickets to the street population for infractions such as ashing cigarettes
($85) obstruction (sitting on the sidewalk), spitting et cetera, and going
as far as destruction of property (shanties) and assault.
THESE ATTACKS ARE NOT ISOLATED. This is the first face of the proposed
plan for the gentrification of the area, heralded in by $14.5 million given
by the municipal government to "clean up" St. Catherine between St. Laurent
and Papineau. The politicians at Hotel de Ville refuse to address the
social profiling and classist policies of their administration. Security
cameras are already appearing along St. Denis targeting "incivilities," the
time has come to fight. If they won't hear our voices in their council
meetings we will have our own council.

Join us Monday, the 21st of June at city hall Notre-Dame coin
Jaques-Cartier. Food will be served at 4 care of the resurrected Food Not
Bombs, and the first street council will follow shortly after. Fight to Win!
