From global action, local motion: Harsha Walia seeks justice for Vancouver newcomers

With the provincial election just days away, Megaphone Issue #129 highlights two important issues not getting much play on the campaign trail: mental health and justice for immigrants and refugees. We interview Downtown Eastside activist Harsha Walia about her struggle to ensure humane treatment for newcomers to Canada. Plus we discuss four actions the new provincial government can take, as outlined by the Canadian Mental Health Association, to improve the lives of people living with mental illness.

Also in this issue: W2 Belongs to Me splits up to create a proposal for getting the Woodwards space back; Megaphone vendor Ron McGrath pays tribute to a popular UBC homeless man; local artists re-imagine a 40 year old photography project capturing Vancouver landmarks; pieces from our writing workshops; and much more!
