An activist group has called for an anti-racism demonstration in Vancouver on Saturday, August 29, in solidarity with Jacob Blake, an unarmed African-American man who was shot by police and left seriously injured in Kenosha, United States, on August 3. The demonstration is scheduled to commence at 16:00 (local time) at Jack Poole Plaza and is anticipated to be well attended.
The demonstration is expected to remain peaceful, but a heightened police presence and localized disruptions are likely in the vicinity of the gathering.
Those in Vancouver are advised to avoid all protests as a precaution, monitor the situation, and heed all instructions issued by local authorities.
