*Edmonton, AB –* On the 2-month anniversary of the Occupation of Wall
Street, Occupy Edmonton members will be holding two free BBQ’s. The BBQ’s
will be held to thank the people of Edmonton for their support of the camp
and to encourage people to visit the camp and talk to members about the
reason why they are braving Edmonton’s cold winters.
The BBQ’s, dependent on weather will be held at 12:00 and 5:00 to give as
many people a chance to learn about the motivations for Occupy and to get a
free meal. The group is concerned about how corporate, primarily oil,
interests are infecting Alberta’s political institutions, dictating public
policy and decimating the environment. They are also concerned about civic
issues such as the recent multimillion-dollar subsidy of the Katz arena and
the $10.5 million cut proposed to city services.
The United Food and Commercial Workers Union made the BBQ possible due to a
