More than a thousand residents of Vancouver showed their support to Wall Street protesters by organizing a demonstration by the Vancouver Art Gallery and close to TD Bank location on sunny Saturday.
Along with the voices against corporate greed and ruling elite that have been destroying people's life all over the world, Vancouver added their own voices of distrust with provincial government.
There were local voices against the province's rich water resources going into private hands and regaining control over Stanley Park which is the second (after Central Park in NYC) largest city park on the North American continent.
There were voices of hope and encouragement from a Chilean refugee from the times of coup d'etat
that killed the reforms of Salvador Allende early in the 70's and against exploitation of tar sands in Alberta.
There were voices against HST and methods of how local government deals with all the issues of the province.
Like everywhere in the world, the demonstrators confirmed their links with 99% of the ones constantly being ripped off by the world financial and ruling elites assuring that "we are the change". There were voices of social revolution that would put people's lives first before money.
There were universal voices to stand up for your rights against the ruling and oppressive elite of the system.
The event was secured by visible presence of police forces on the streets where some street entertainers brought their performing arts to.
