Occupy protesters and the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) are planning to take over downtown Ottawa streets Monday afternoon for rallies marking the return of Parliament.
PSAC said it will join Ontario Federation of Labour president Sid Ryan and ”community allies” in a march from Confederation Park to Parliament Hill to protest federal budget cuts and their impact on Canadians.
At around 1 p.m., Gian Piero Ciambella, will carry a banner on his plane which reads “StephenHarperNousDeteste.ca” over the Ottawa-Gatineau area. The RCMP ordered Ciambella to land his plane when he flew the same banner on Sept. 3.
The Canadian Taxpayers Federation will also fly a banner over the region Monday related to its campaign for MP pension reform.
Occupy Toronto will also converge on the Hill for its “Stop Harper!” event. The group will organize a “People’s Parliament” following the march, according to a post on its website.
“Please join us on September 17th to stop Harper, demand real democracy, and actually create it!” the post said.
