Demonstrators Gather at Carnegie Center ~ Wordless Wednesday, May 26, 2010
Click here for more Wordless Wednesday.
Update May 26, 2010 - This update was posted due to the great interest in the subject matters of the demonstration. I am not 100 percent sure about the demonstration but I believe it was organized in protest of the closure of a health centre located next door. The building where the people are gathering is a community centre which provides recreation and other programs for the very dispossessed people living in the area. These people are the poorest of the poor in Canada and many of them are on drugs and have health issues such as HIV.
The regional health authority removed funding for the health centre recently because it said that the same services were being provided at another location in the neighbourhood. The residents disagree with this assessment and so took to the streets. This is only one of a series of demonstrations on this matter. When I passed through the area on the transit bus the crowd was just getting organized.
Thank you to my readers for your keen interest in these photos.
