We use our power of protest for good

Vancouver Magazine - - Cover Story -

Our pen­chant for protests can some­times be hard to take se­ri­ously. Case in point: two marches, with the same colour scheme even, col­lided along Granville Street in June, caus­ing mass con­fu­sion among those walk­ing for their re­spec­tive causes (sex work­ers’ rights on the one side and end­ing slaugh­ter­houses on the other). But when acou­ple of dozen ex­treme right wingers planned an anti-Mus­lim, anti-im­mi­grant rally at city hall in Au­gust, about 4,000 peo­ple turned up to rally against racism and show that, in this town at least, love re­ally does trump hate.
