First Nations assert Aboriginal Title in Oppenheimer Park eviction

Homeless Tenters, First Nations Leaders from the Downtown Eastside, Coast Salish Territories and their supporters intend to defy an eviction notice given to the homeless in Oppenheimer Park on Sunday, July 20th at 7am.

Together they have issued their own Eviction Notice to the City of Vancouver (see below).
