Mark calendars for noon, Sunday Paint-In at cop shop! WP’s 10 year old daughter and friends offer to paint first daisies, nod to our Woodward's experience as Dave Hamm, President of VANDU said today: "WE'LL NEVER BE TRICKED AGAIN." Lovely woman in Europe Hotel donated her rebel mother’s wheelchair to Dave. Not letting Dave walk anywhere, or too tired to show up to picket the next day. Good thing dear neighbor gave me her car, says WP. Stella and Victoria collect amazing number of petition sheets - have about 40 completed now. Some cash donations coming in, thanks everyone! Some flames from the sparks!
Tonight -- Serious assault/pepper spray on Dave, Fraser, Kim, Joe and others at Pidgin picket. Who did it? Media continually attacking picket and dehumanizing people there – fueling vigilantes, maybe paid by pro-gentrification? Calling on all picketers 7pm Friday night show of peace and strength.
