(The People's Forum)
Saturday July 22nd from 6:00-9:00 pm
NEW LOCATION @ The Spiral Cafe, 418 Craigflower
A activist gathering and people's forum here in Victoria featuring engaging speakers, impassioned activists and YOU!
Sponsored by the Social Environmental Alliance, Socialist Fightback BC, Cascadia Now, and the free radical bulletin board
Admission is $5 or pay what you can (no one turned away due to lack of funds)
All proceeds will go to worthy causes.
Focused on social, environmental and economic justice, the series aims to foster a space where we can speak truth to power, celebrating our solidarity and having fun at the same time while offering a voice to the voiceless.
The evening will include a soap box open mic to get you up there, roundtable discussions and audience participation activities to get you involved and a flyer table to keep you informed, spreading the word, being heard!
This is your forum! All power to the people!
Obviously, hate speeches of any kind will not be tolerated.
