Toronto activists are inviting you to celebrate the opening of the Pope
Squat by coming to a Radical Garage Sale on the Squat's proverbial front
lawn on Monday, July 29, 2002. Although garage sales are normally held

Proceeds from your sales can be donated to OCAP and the Pope Squat.
The location of the Pope Squat will be announced when it is opened on
July 25th. Check your email or the OCAP website for updates:
