Satirical protest parodies Prime Minister’s policy of plutocracy

At a rally at 1:00 p.m. sharp this Halloween, a satirical protest performance will take place outside the BMO Centre in Calgary. At the event, actors and volunteers will pose as extravagantly wealthy multibillionaires, and will thank 2013 Conservative Party of Canada Convention delegates for supporting policies that suppress wages, gut retirement security, and place an unfair burden on middle-class families.

The event is organized by the Alberta Federation of Labour, the province’s largest worker advocacy organization.

When: Thursday, October 31, 1:00 p.m. sharp

Where: BMO Convention Centre, 12th Avenue SE & 3rd Street SE Calgary

Who: Alberta Federation of Labour

(President Gil McGowan will be available for comment)
