This year in Victoria the Committee To End Homelessness Victoria (CTEHV) is hosting the beginning of May Day Festival 2013 on the Green in front of Our Place Society. We are a part of the May Day Festival Committee. I went to my first meeting last week and I was moved by the heartfelt welcome as well as the solidarity shown.
I am excited that we are currently doing banners at Our Place on tuesdays at 1230 up in the chapel. CTEHV is asking our community who are or have been homeless as well as those housed, to come forward and play labour or working class songs. I have already asked Blackvelvet, he is in! You may have a poem or want to just share, I kym hothead will be hosting an open mic.
