Ill be livestreaming this event on http://www.civilianmedia.tv starting around 12PM EST.
On Friday, upon the order of the Director of City of Toronto Parks, Forestry and Recreation, the beautiful People's Peas Garden in Queen's Park was removed, food trashed, and replaced with sod.
This occurred without warning or consultation with the community who grew it, with hundreds participating for five months, the day before the festival to celebrate its harvest. It happened in a City affected by a global food security crisis, with few public spaces permitted for residents to grow.
Join us on Monday
at City Hall for a peasful rally for the right to food in Toronto and everywhere. Food not Lawns! Yes to food in public spaces! Yes to a better food system! No Garden is Illegal!
Bring soil, seeds, and live plants ;) Food to eat & share, signs, and music! Tweet with #foodTO #TOpoli #occupygardens
Organized by the People's Peas Garden, Occupy Gardens, and Food Forward.
