Chinese School @ 105 Keefer: Anti-gentrification Edition

Beedie may have gotten their development permit approved for 105 Keefer in Chinatown, but as long as the gentrifier condo building isn't built, it's not over. We'll continue to fight on. We'll occupy and reclaim space loudly at 105 Keefer to protest with our culture, voices, and bodies.

Join us for Chinese School at 105 Keefer in Chinatown where Mark Lee 阿聰 ("Ah Cong") Mark Lee of Onion Language Centre will teach you Chinese language and phrases centred around anti-gentrification and community power (including phrases featured at the 105 Keefer protest rallies!).

This is a free family-friendly event where all ages are welcome. Seating and water will not be provided, so please bring your own chair, refreshments, and come on down to Chinatown to learn Chinese!

When: Sunday, July 9 at 2 to 4pm

Where: Chinatown Memorial Plaza next to 105 Keefer

Cost: Free (RSVP link in bio)

Bring your own chair (and another for someone else)
