Mr. Bubbles, thats bubble gum chewing officer, was parked with three or four other officers, two marked cars, in front of Our Place for our meeting time, right at the start.
Here is some video footage of him in case you forgot what he looks like:
During our meeting times it is common, at lunch, supper and breakfast, its common. 300 pm on its common.
They still ride bikes into courtyard with NO RESPECT for staff. Thank goodness the CTEHV has help with putting up notices from a resident, thanks P. Thanks also to John for helping out with getting notices up.
We however did not have any homeless family members come to our meeting. Just some of us “close to the streets” or some of us who have been homeless. This is an ongoing concern as many are no longer comfortable at Our Place for some time. More and more our once a month speaker meetings is mostly for our housed community members at this point. If we continue at Our Place we are in trouble! Too much has changed since reverend allen left!
The Radical Health Alliance supported by our Committee to end Homelessnes Vikkktoria (CTEHV) are having a gathering on the green at 1130 am this friday!
“The street community has spoken, come and find out what a more welcoming, comfortable and safe vision for Pandora Green looks like for people who access sevices like Our Place.
Repeal the Pandora Green Good Neighbor Agreement!
Implement the Pandora Green Better Neighbor Agreement!
-cops out of Our Place.
-Bring back public benches.
-Anti Stigma Training for signatories.
coffee and snacks until they run out!”
THIS IS WHY WE NEED HELP TO FIND A SPOT WHERE BY ALL ARE WELCOME.
PLEASE, I BEG ON MY KNEES, HELP US FIND A SPOT TO MEET IN THE DOWNTOWN. Our Place is no longer ours!
I fear myself and many others may not be able to handle going to these meetings much longer under these conditions. We must find a spot where by all actual homeless are welcome, from extreme drinkers to illicit drug users, Victoria is looking pretty bad right now and, I am discussing with folks interested starting a campaign on thawVictoria to educate and possibly embarass / shame Vikkktoria Internationally for this unbelievable state we are in of poor bashing, stigma and police. All City of VIctoria and the CRD and VIHA need radicals who will DO! Although a nice left leaning social minded fellow who did manage to tell us a lot of things we already know about the awful mess we are in and NO PERMANENT HOMES being built now: CRD speaker made the mistake , with me anyways, to say he and dean fortin are on the same page re: housing here in Vikkktoria..
their solution: Ongoing Poverty Pimping Ventures where by they find homeless and the growing working poor to be poster children for! WHAT ARE / HAVE THE LIBERLAS DONE WITH ALL THAT TRASNFER MONEY THE FEDS SLUFFED OFF TO THEM ALMOST 20 YEARS AGO??? POOR BASHING B.S.
Dean Fortin had a great program years ago that ran 1 1/2 years and they cut it, seems like it was working too well.
That story and more are developing and I thank folks for stepping up!
People, look up the word subversive!
Lets GO GO GO!
We need to really think about what we call a success.
Rock Bay apartments are NOT a success when you think abot the fact that BC Liberals DID NOT FUND THIS, Feds DI D NOT FUND THIS!
WTF is going on here? SICK SICK SICK!
We need to attack this problem at its core, problem government based upon an old outdated model we must PUSH like heck to change or we are going to keep dying, healht issues, jail terms:
THIS is the prefascist plans the likes of Harperites have.
STOP LIVING IN FEAR and START LIVING!
