12 – 6 PM
Front Yard of the Pope Squat
On July 25, 2002, OCAP will open the Pope Squat. In the middle of Toronto’s housing crisis, as the City spends millions of dollars funding the Pope’s visit, squatters will demand the construction of more social housing as they occupy an abandoned building in a Toronto neighborhood. The Pope Squat will ultimately be transformed into self-managed social housing and a vibrant community center.
Toronto activists are inviting you to celebrate the opening of the Pope Squat by coming to a Radical Garage Sale on the Squat’s proverbial front lawn on Monday, July 29, 2002. Although garage sales are normally held by residents of a building when they move OUT, this community garage sale is being organized in support of the occupants who will just have moved IN!
So clear all the unused stuff out of your stifling apartments. Bring it down to the Pope Squat on Monday afternoon and sell or barter it for someone else’s unused stuff. Sales contributions of Radical Kitsch are especially encouraged.
Proceeds from your sales can be donated to OCAP and the Pope Squat.
The location of the Pope Squat will be announced when it is opened on July 25th. Check your email or the OCAP website for updates: www.ocap.ca. For more information about the Radical Garage Sale, please get in touch with Anna at or John at .
WHEN THE GOVERNMENT REFUSES TO BUILD HOUSING, PEOPLE HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO TAKE IT THEMSELVES.
