Thousands of people came out to Vancouver City Hall on Saturday noon in support of an anti-racist demonstration countering a previously planned rally against immigration.
Many Metro Vancouverites and politicians condemned the planned rally as an overt display of racism and white supremacy.
Liz, an anti-racist demonstrator at City Hall said, “”Hate has no place in our community… Canadians to stand up in support of immigrants. We’re pretty much all immigrants. The only people that have a right to be mad at immigrants are First Nations people, and they’re… here in support of an anti-racist message.”
