Occupy Vancouver rally at the gallery
Thousands of Vancouver residents joined the Occupy Wall Street movement yesterday.
Many at the demonstration expressed distrust with provincial government.
Some protested the province's rich water resources going into private hands. Others brought attention to issues surrounding ownership of Stanley Park, which is the second largest park on North American continent, second to New York City's Central Park.
There were those who spoke out against exploitation of tar sands in Alberta. There were voices against HST.
There were voices of social revolution that would put people's lives first before money.
There were police everywhere, and street performers.
