East York ACORN members gathered together on July 15 to support a long term senior tenant and ACORN member Veronica Phillips, who is being evicted from the Hope Seniors Centre. Seniors deserve respect and dignity! Members rallied to peacefully protest against such unfair evictions!
Veronica has been having maintenance and repair issues and informed the management, Community First Developments Inc (agents for Hope Senior Centre) and nothing was done about it for the past 3 years. 15 members came out to support!
The action was lead by amazing ACORN members, Earl, Antonietta, Alejandra, Nina and more, with some great chants! Veronica has broken washroom pipes, faucets broken, moulds etc. Veronica pays her rent on time every month! All she wanted was her repairs to be done.
Members were joined by MPP Rima Berns, who came out to support Veronica!
