#GIDYVR postponed due to COVID-19
on Thursday, March 12th, the provincial government announced a ban on gatherings larger than 250 people. in the midst of organizing a read-in and rally, CATA anticipated the cancellation of VPL rentals as a result. the next day, CATA was able to confirm that the fascist TERF/SWERF talk scheduled for March 21st was to be postponed. (we’re currently being accused by Moophy of having someone at the VPL “working for us on the inside” despite their own organizer “leaking info” on their own facebook page.)
we’re relieved. unfortunately, the VPL is not off the hook. and sooner or later, public spaces will be open for use again. at best, this is an opportunity for us to have more time, to reprioritize, and to focus on caring for the immediate needs of ourselves and our communities.
the following CATA events are postponed:
- Thursday, March 19 – rally organizing meeting at the Carnegie
- Saturday, March 21 – read-in & rally at the Vancouver Public Library
new dates are To Be Announced (TBA). as usual, if you would like to be involved in the campaign against VPL please contact us (see bottom of the newsletter).
