Hi gang,
  In this and following posts, I'm going to list some upcoming events 
that OCAP has planned in Toronto. Hope you can make it out to some of 
them. 
  First, this isn't really an OCAP event, but OCAP is certainly involved 
in it. it is the Homeless Memorial Service to be held this Friday, May 
22/98 at Nathan Phillips Square from 12:00-2:00 pm. It is to honour the 
memory of homeless people who have died on the street. Authour and 
Activist, Linda McQuaig will be speaking  as will be John Clarke of 
OCAP. There will also be an open mike to allow attendees to have their 
say. There will be free food; soup, cabbage rolls, sandwiches, coffee, 
pop, and juice. Music to be provided by the Full Circle Band and the 
Eagle Heart Native Drummers. There will also be something else happening 
as a part of the Service, but I'm not at liberty to reveal that. You 
have to come to the service to see what it is. 
  Second, there will be a National Day Of Action on May 29/98 called 
Stop The War Against Immigrants and Refugees. There will be a rally at 
11:00 am at Liberal Party HQ at 10 St. Mary St. just south of Bloor and 
Yonge. There will also be actions taking place in London, Ottawa, 
Montreal, Edmonton, and Vancouver. This event will be sign language 
interpreted for the hearing impaired. It will also be catered by Food 
Not Bombs. For more information, call Ontario Coalition Against Poverty 
at (416) 925-6939. 
  Another campaign to follow in the next post. 
Bonnie
