G20 protesters get a free buffet too
Everyone knows the best part of a conference is the free food, and thanks to community organizers the People’s Kitchen, even rowdy anarchists barricaded from the G20 proceedings get to nosh on complimentary goodies as they participate in anti-capitalistic fun. The People’s Kitchen expects to feed upwards of 3,000 people as they provide meals at rallies all over the city, says the Star. This Friday an estimated 1,000 will feast on vegan delights and gourmet lasagna at Allan Gardens where a major protest is slated. The People’s Kitchen is also affiliated with The Toronto Community Mobilization Network, which has set up a quaintly subversive proletariat hangout for protesters in a basement on Queen West. The “convergence space” is adorned with well-worn couches, a coffee table and posters pressing for reclaiming power from “the man” while music serenades the uprising.
It should be an interesting dinner party, with everyone from anti-capitalists to immigration lobbyists. Tasty delights and party masks of world leaders’ faces? Sounds like the protesters are in for one heck of a good time.
