DESPERATE PROTESTERS OCCUPY PLAYGROUND IN AFFLUENT VANCOUVER NEIGHBORHOOD
(WEST VANCOUVER) - Having been twice evicted from other protest sites, Occupy Vancouver activists descended on a playground in an affluent Vancouver neighborhood and pitched tents, vowing to remain until their demands are met.
“We will not be moved! It is time for the 1% under-10 years olds to start sharing their playgrounds with the 99% toddlers! Why should they have the best teeter-totters, swings and those cool spiral slides, while the 99% have to make do with those dumb bendy horses and a lousy slide that someone probably pissed on?”
Mayor Gregor Robertson is open-minded to the protesters demands and hopes for a peaceful solution.
Said the Mayor in a hastily-organized press conference on the swing set; “These Occupy Playground activists make some good points and should be taken seriously. I have had meetings on the swings to hear their concerns. Now watch how far I can jump! Weeee!”
Vancouver PD are letting them remain for the time-being at least as long as the weather remains so shitty.
