APPEAL FOR HELP WITH OUR JUNE 15 MARCH.ON QUEEN'S PARK

Sisters and Brothers,

      OCAP is forging ahead with its plans to March on Queen's Park on June 
15. We will be demanding the restoration of cuts to income and housing for 
the poor and calling on the Harris Regime to repeal its 'safe streets' 
legislation that sets in motion a brutal crackdown on homeless people. By 
marching that day with the aim of addressing the Legislature, as opposed to 
making speeches on the lawn, we will be making clear that we are serious 
about beating this Government and creating an example for others to follow.

       While we expect to receive a large amount of in kind support mound 
June 15, there will still be some considerable costs. Local organizations 
that want to come in by bus or van may need financial help and we plan to 
feed at least a thousand people at the kick off in Allan Gardens at noon. 
We are, therefore, asking supporters to send in any and all donations you 
can raise to help us meet these expenses.

Thanks for your help and support and, above all, we hope to see you
in Allan Gardens on June 15.

Thanks - OCAP
