So. I heard another unit came up at a friends BC Housing unit in the area I am seeking a home, for quite a few years now.
I was told to call BC Housing every three months to insure I stay up tpo date and good to go.
Go where? Although condo’s are being built for many new to Vikkktoria folks, like many form Hellberta, I mean, I get why they want to leave, I did right?
I have given to this economy and city for almost 20 years now.
I have never had a permanent home. Even when I worked, it was pretty much temporary unless I was with a partner and even then, the economy ahd us running around trying to find sustainable work, lol. I still believe in it.
So, like I have for many years now, I called BC Housing, I get a call service, I mean I get a person named Jen answer in Vancouver. She is already on the computer cause, that’s her job, data input.
Her job is not to find housing, cause she knows there is none. She knows, as I found out, that these Liberal fiberals are not and do not have plans top make homes for poor folks. The buzz word is “advocacy”.
Her job is NOT to insure homes are built for folks, but to advocate for them to get the meagre temporary housing available, very little! Means more temporary contract jobs for more middle class or upwardly mobile middle class or the middle class which is krumbling under the Neo Conservative and Neo Liberal Regime!
The middle class are the last strong hold of colonialism in its current unhealthy form.
Either the middle class wakes up and shifts this system radically from within BEFORE MORE DIE or start placing paper bags on their heads, go to PROTESTS and allow the Black Blok youth who WANT change to surround and protect you from police brutality as legitimate protestors exercising their rights to protest
A black bloc is a tactic for protests and marches where individuals wear black clothing, scarves, sunglasses, ski masks, motorcycle helmets with padding, or other face-concealing and face-protecting items. The clothing is used to conceal marchers’ identities and hinder criminal prosecution, by making it difficult to distinguish between participants. It is also used to protect their faces and eyes from items such as pepper-spray which law enforcement often uses to stun. The tactic allows the group to appear as one large unified mass, and promotes solidarity. Black bloc participants are often associated withanarchism.
The tactic was developed in the 1980s in the European autonomist movement‘s protests against squatter evictions, nuclear power and restrictions on abortion among other things. Black blocs gained broader media attention outside Europe during the 1999 Seattle WTO protests, when a black bloc damaged property of GAP, Starbucks, Old Navy, and other multinationalretail locations in downtown Seattle.
Black blocs are an occasional tactic used by people who may also use other protest tactics at different times.
From what I have seen, Black Blok are often children of the middle class. Many feel it is this class that has a lot of waking up to do. So, I guess the youth are leading here?
In closing: Poverty Pimping Kapitalist Economy is sadly leading here in Vikkktoria with the GNA leaders attempting to poor bash Viktoria back into the late 1800’s where they live in dreams decaying.
In solidarity with government workers, I say, maybe stop just going to therapy and talking pills your doctor prescribes, try going back to protest, or to protest for the first time.
You will learn that, all privileges you have now are simply taken from others who then suffer, that we need to share.
In the spirit of sharing I urge folks to fight for social housing, for us.
You might be fine, but we are not. You are not fine for long, as system dictates, many of you will not make it and will fall to poverty or streets or drugs or work accident or finally, a car accident, which occurs far too often, it was the number one killer of our youth in Amerikkka for years, might still be?
When you see us leafleting for Social Housing Now, (and you will see more and more of us doing so) as we educate ourselves and each other about our rights. We have the right to housing in Canada, used to anyways. If you are happily housed, maybe take some time to help others who are not. We also have a duty to greater community.
That is all we ask. If you love and care for Victoria, then lets make it something we can be proud of. At this point, Victoria is looking like all is lost and I swear I will witness in my life a mass exodus out of Victoria. “Backwards“ is the word that is becoming synonymous with Victoria.
Poverty Pimping Industry has to end. We need homes, we need a guaranteed livable income so, we have work to do.
Please sign up for an anti oppression training and learn about decolonization. This is the future, Healthy Life for all.
Remember Martin Luther King? They had him killed after he stated “the poor white man and the black man have a lot in common…” and, as he was just about to start an international campaign for the eradication of poverty thru the use of a guaranteed livable income, he was shot. Unity thru education like decolonization and anti oppression training is what is needed. we need a GLI!
“It is important to note that Dr. King was in Memphis to support striking sanitation workers. Therein Dr. King gave speeches connecting racism and classism, uniting the civil right and labor movements in one of the most powerful labor victories of the past 100 years.” Shane Calder
