GATEWAY BLOCKADE NOW!

March 4, 2009

Support needed NOW for Gateway Blockade!

a bulletin from http://www.gatewaysucks.org

The last intact residence on the proposed freeway alignment in Surrey’s Bridgeview neighbourhood is slated for demolition TODAY — MONDAY, to be replaced by an ugly pile of “pre-load” sand. Bridgeview was hit first and hardest by preparation for the SFPR freeway, which feeds a longstanding desire on the part of government and developers to completely industrialize this multicultural working family neighbourhood.

A group of resisters from Surrey, Delta and Vancouver are NOW outside the house preparing to stand in front of the bulldozers 24/7, in support of this community and in solidarity with the Day of Civil Disobedience Against Climate Change throughout North America.

THIS ACTION IS GETTING LOTS OF MEDIA ATTENTION — BUT WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT NOW!

The fight is far from over — and while many homes in other areas along the path of the freeway are still months from the prospect of demolition — this is a great opportunity to make a stand against the bulldozers in Bridgeview!

And with PM2 financing just collapsed, there has never been a better moment to grind Falcon’s face in the sand.

If you can lend your supporting to this action, even for an hour or two, please contact Tom IMMEDIATELY at 604.588.4203, or just come to the corner of 124 St and 116 Ave. in Bridgeview asap (its about 1/2 hr by SkyTrain from Broadway SkyTrain station). Snacks, warm drinks and good cheer much appreciated!

HOMES NOT FREEWAYS!
