Occupy Toronto: Disability Pride March

(This was passed my way by the Disability Studies program at Ryerson.  As much as I would love to attend, I am unable to do so, and so I spread the word.  ~Corina)

Toronto Disability Pride March
Saturday, October 29   ·  12:00pm - 3:00pm
Nathan Philips Square to Occupy Toronto (St. James park)

Please forward and share far and wide!!!
Join us at the square, and come down to Occupy Toronto if you can! They're making great efforts to be accessible down there.

Why Disability Pride?
Because Rob Ford, or somebody under him, cancelled International Day of Persons with Disabilities Celebrations ...
Because when cuts happen, people with disabilities are often the first to be hit, wheeltrans was almost on the chopping block, and social housing still is.

Because there have been way too many deaths and injuries to people with disabilities in interaction with Toronto Police, and considering the amount of funding they get, there should me some disability training. No one should be dying in police interactions in Toronto!

It's time we showed Toronto that Torontonians with Disabilities have a voice, and we will not be sold out or discriminated against!
