Dear Friends,

The incredible brothers and sisters from the Seattle Solidarity Network have agreed to come up to Victoria to put on a workshop about their mission, tactics, and how to set up a Victoria/Vancouver island solidarity network, using the Sea Sol model.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with  Seal Sol i have added their website for you to review.  However, to summarize, the Seattle Solidarity Network i picked this statement right off their website.  It reads:

“Seattle Solidarity (“Sea Sol”) is a volunteer network of working people who believe in standing up for our rights. Our goal is to support our fellow workers’ strikes and struggles, build solidarity, and organize to deal with specific job, housing, and other problems caused by the greed of the rich and powerful. Join us!  Let’s fight to win.”

The Seattle Solidarity Network works with renters and workers to take the fight directly to their scum bosses and landlords who seek to deprive us of our homes, our salaries, and our dignity.  This is a model that can work anywhere, and in a place like Victoria, with rents as astronomical and ridiculous as they are, and cheating bosses as plentiful as` tourists, we will have not lack of appropriate targets to choose from.  Lets take the fight to the Boss and Landlord now!!!

The success of Sea Sol has been spread to new chapters in Portland, Olympia, Tacoma, and now Vancouver.  It is time for us to join the struggle and learn what we can from this dedicated sisters and brothers.

Please come out to this important workshop at the B.C.G.E.U hall (2994 Douglas st) from 1:00pm-6:00pm on Saturday November 6th.  Lunch provided.

We are asking for a $10-$20 donation to help cover our costs, but NO ONE WILL BE TURNED AWAY!!

Space is limited so please RSVP to this email ASAP at

Also, starting at 7pm, please join us for the “Solidarity Social” with incredible folks act, food and refreshments.  Couldn’t make the workshop?  Come on down and chat with the Sea Sol folks, and have a good time!

Brought to you by the Vancouver Island General membership Branch of the Industrial Workers of the World.
