Occupy Edmonton will be holding its 2nd free BBQ on August 26th, from 12:00 PM to 4:30 PM at Veterans Park (10013 102 Street NW), which is open to the public. There will be live and recorded music, games, and other festivities.
Beyond providing free food, Occupy Edmonton is working to build community and solidarity with members of our society that have been marginalized in either obvious or not-so-obvious ways. We believe this task is best accomplished through public events where networking and communication is available and encouraged. This event is about tearing down barriers, recognizing that we all have something to offer each other regardless of our wealth, and moving beyond stereotypes.
Our previous BBQ at Victoria Square Memorial Park on July 14th fed around 100 people throughout the day, and we expect similar results again. Meat and vegan option will be available.
