Why does this seem so significant to me? The invitation to this event last year (sent by Kevin Annett) is below:
Occupy Vancouver voted against participation in this event- I was a big part of that. I argued quite passionately that most people in Vancouver, clergy & parishioners included, find what happened with the Residential Schools to be abhorrent, and invading a church would not help anyone. At best, it would make us all look like assholes- at worst, it could have a negative long-term effect on the Indigenous community’s fight to get fair compensation.
Kevin Annett issued a press release on the issue- and, as usual, he blamed the curtailment of OV’s participation on government agents! lol
Here are some of the responses from people inside Occupy Vancouver:
So, does this mean that the above people (and me) are all government agents? ROTFL! Annett did an interesting interview with Ricky shortly before he died:
