Next weeks rebellion

Please take the time to read through this last round of essential information about the October rebellion.

On the above link you’ll find the latest update on the action plan for next week, understanding your rights, what essential gear to bring as well as an FAQ page, and more.

Whatever happens next week, we’re here for each other.

Whatever happens, we’re here for the best reasons in the world.

Helpers for The Beacon

The Beacon has been open for two months, and has been a runaway success. We need more helpers to join our lovely team of volunteers at 20 Kendrick Street. Activities would include hosting the meet and greet desk, and listening to the stories people bring in.

Also being a message hub for all the wonderful people who are part of these movements. It’s a great opportunity to make new friends and get involved more with the vital work being created here. Shifts would be 10-1 or 1-4 Monday to Saturday, ideally a regular commitment, as much or as little as you can offer.
