TORONTO, Nov. 15, 2011 /CNW/ - At a General Assembly today, the people
of Occupy Toronto decided to remain in the park, despite the eviction
notices served by the City of Toronto.
We re-affirm our right to the use of public space to assemble,
peacefully protest and establish collective dialogue on issues that
affect us all. These rights are guaranteed to all of us through the
Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. We welcome the support of 11
city councilors who oppose the immediate eviction of Occupy Toronto.
Inspired by Occupy Wall Street, Occupy Toronto has been converging at
St. James Park since October 15th. We stand in solidarity with the global movement against a broken
economic system that does not take into account our environmental and
Dialogue and mobilization will be continuing throughout the night and we
call on everyone to come to the park and stand with us to defend our
right to continue this process. There will be a General Assembly at 6pm
and a rally at 11pm.
To Rob Ford we say: you cannot evict an idea whose time has come!
