- Info night with photo slideshow and spoken presentations.

RHIZOME CAFÉ / 317 E. BROADWAY
- On January 17, 2009, the small storefront space at the collectively-run Spartacus Books in Vancouver was packed with people for an info night on the social unrest in Greece that was sparked by the police murder of 15-year old Alexandros Grigoropoulos in Athens on December 6. A slideshow of photos and a video of a TV station occupation were shown. Presenters took turns reading out statements from various occupied buildings across Greece. A statement from a solidarity demonstration in St. Louis, USA, was also read out and some photos were shown from the riots set off by the police murder of Oscar Grant in Oakland, USA, on January 1. A booklet was distributed containing most of the statements read out and the night ended with a discussion of the social upheaval in Greece, the anarchist movement there and the situation in Vancouver. A second info night on the same theme is to take place at the Rhizome Cafe in Vancouver on February 5, 2009.
