The rally outside Grape Expectations was a success. Here is a report from Mary:
Protest success (thank you)
Date Posted: 10/30/2006 9:33:50 PM
On October 30, 2006 at 5pm, 12 people from across Hamilton and Southern Ontario converged on a quiet evening of peaceful protest and a demonstration in front of the Liuna Station at 360 James St. N. Hamilton, ON. A single mother very vocal in the cause shone brightly to raise awareness of the injustices CAS has thrust upon her and her three children. We will keep her name anonymous but her three children were just as vocal. A small number we were but we made so much noise, and yet were very relaxed and jovial and security guards had to keep up their guard when angry CAS workers, politicians and their wives were just as vocal against us and tried to edge us on in our right to peacefully demonstrate on the streets of Hamilton.
There was no police involvement yet threats were made. Pictures were taken of the protest and we thought it was a great success. We called it a night at approximately 8pm when people got cold and the crowd had entered the building. I would approximate that there was a full house this evening at Liuna Station for the Fundraising event, yet I think we would be the talk of the evening when our protesters made contact with the ones who hurt us the most in our fight for injustice. Thank you for your support to all those who attended our 2nd annual Grape expectations Liuna Station event, I felt it was a success that we showed up to continue to fight for our children.
