Women’s March to Fearmans

May 7, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Welcome! We are planning to march from downtown Burlington and end at Fearmans Pork Inc. slaughterhouse at 821 Appleby Line. We are meeting at 11 am in downtown Burlington (location below) and hope to start marching at 11:30 and arrive at Fearmans around 2 pm. We will also have some truly inspirational women and AR advocates that will be saying a few words at the end of the march!

We hope activists from Burlington, Hamilton, Niagara Region, London, Kitchener Warterloo, Oshawa, Toronto and other surrounding areas join the March. We’re aiming to have at least 100 attend the march and we’re planning to organize carpools. Please feel free to be creative and make your own signs for this march (connecting the issues/love based).

Here is the route, we will start on the southeast corner of Lakeshore Road at Pearl Street. It is about 8k and should take us about 1 1/2 – 2 hours.

We would recommend parking at the end location (either at the Tim Hortons or at the Go Train station) and taking an Uber with a few others to the start location. You can schedule the Uber in advance. The oneway ride will cost you about $10-$15, but if you share the ride it will obviously be much cheaper and there is no parking fee at Tim Hortons (across the street from Fearmans) or the Go Station (on the East side of Fearmans). You can also take a bus. Here is the website: https://tripplanner.burlington.ca/hiwire?.a=iRealTimeDisplay.

We shall be singing “We Shall Overcome” throughout the march and there will be a song leader so no worries 🙂 http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/joanbaez/weshallovercome.html. We will also have some anti-opression chants that I will share soon.

We will have some signs but if you would like to make your own please feel free. We really don’t have any idea exactly how many people will turn up so it is probably best most of us make at least one.

Also there 3 vegan restaurants downtown Burlington,https://www.happycow.net/north_america/canada/ontario/burlington/ . A bit farther away but worth the trip is http://blisskitchen.ca/ andhttp://www.vegebitez.com/

Thank you everyone and look forward to seeing you all there!
