Hamilton Encampment Network Statement: Demand an end to Encampment Evictions in so-called Hamilton, Ontario

We echo The Hamilton Encampment Support Network‘s recent statement and petition to end encampment evictions in the city of Hamilton.

” What’s clear to us is that encampment evictions put people directly in harm’s way and we know that Black and Indigenous community members are overrepresented in encampments. Across Turtle Island, from Tkaronto to the unseeded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), səl̓ílwətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh), & Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) Nations in so-called Vancouver, it is unjust to violate the dignity and humanity of people in our community.”
