There's an interesting, novel and fun protest coming up at the end of this month here in Winnipeg. I speak of the 'Chalk for Peace' events on Saturday, August 28 down at Vimy Ridge Park. Rather than marching up and down and at the end of it listening to boring political speeches from the 'official left' people are invited to express their individual creativity using the sidewalks as a canvas. Here's the announcement >>>
Chalk 4 Peace (August 28th)
Time August 28 · 2:00pm - 11:00pm

Location Vimy Ridge Park
More Info
Chalk 4 Peace is a global event. It happens in many cities across the planet and spreads to more and more every year.

The first Chalk 4 Peace in Winnipeg was started by Sathya Dhara back in 2007, with help from friends.

Come out and draw some art on the sidewalks and see how the pavement transforms throughout the day. With everything going on in this crazy planet of ours the world can always use a little bit more peace. If anybody wants to get involved and help out in any way that would be awesome, just give us a shout.

Invite your friends and spread the word!

Chalk 4 Peace is Saturday, August 28th. If it rains the event will be postponed until the following day, August 29th.

***We will be taking donations on-site for War Child Canada.***

There will be bands (acoustic), drum jams, face painting, fire spinning and some other surprises.

More info TBA.
