Join the OCAP women of Etobicoke Wednesday August 30
If the government can spend 17+ million on a new police station why don't they spend money on the youth?
The City gives more money to police than they do to our kids' recreation centre and programs. The kids are just sitting around with nothing to do, meanwhile they get harrassed by the cops.
If you are coming from Downtown and want to travel in a group, meet at 9:45 am at KIPLING SUBWAY STATION
If you want to meet at the site of the demonstration meet at:
10 AM: Demonstration
Meet at Mount Olive Basket ball court.
(Mount olive is a housing project just north of Finch, west off Kipling.)
3pm: BBQ and Court makeover.
The basketball court at Mount olive housing complex has been out of order since the summer of 2005. If the city won't fix it up, we will. Come out and help!

The OCAP Women of Etobicoke organizes to fight poor people's daily struggles to survive, and against the governments responsible for that poverty. Based in North Etobicoke, one of the city's poorest and largely immigrant suburbs the organization is run by somali mothers living in the area.
For those living in North Etobicoke police abuse is nothing new, but in recent months in the name of so called anti-gang measures the largest police operations in Toronto's history have been carried out in these communities. Actions on August 30th are a part of the OCAP Women of Etobicoke's everyday struggles against Toronto police racism and violence.
