A rally with over 200 protestors marched from Pantages Theatre in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver, to Olympic Village in False Creek.

The rally was the kick-off to the Olympic Village Tent City 2011. The tent city had three demands:

1. Resident-controlled 100% social housing for ALL unsold units at the Olympic Village.

2. The purchase of a minimum 10 sites per year in the Downtown Eastside, and the creation of resident controlled 100% social housing on all those sites.

3. An END to the criminalization of poverty by immediately abolishing Project Civil City, overturning anti-street vending by-laws and all anti-poor discriminatory legislation and by raising welfare rates.
