EVENT: Art Show & Sale in Support of Pie Activists

When: Friday November 16 from 10:00am - 9:00 pm

Where: Calgary Opera Centre; 1315 7 st S.W.

Who: Calgary Anarchist Black Cross & Community Artists

$3.00 Cover Charge, all proceeds going to the cause.

What is the cause?

Lily Phan is being charged with public mischief for the attempted "pie-ing" of priemier Ed Stelmach in July 2007 where she smeared cream instead on a body guard.

Donna McPhee has been charged with "Assault with a weapon" for successfully chocolate cream pie-ing Calgary Mayor Dave Bonconier in the same month.

These women's actions were in protest of Alberta's inaction on homelessness and poverty. The proceeds of the cover charge and selected portions of the art sales are contributing to these women's legal fees.
