A familiar face from Occupy Calgary

A familiar face from Occupy Calgary

I didn’t get the man’s name, but I’ve seen him at all the Occupy Calgary events I’ve been to (or so it seems).

This was a rally to support people seeking freedom in Syria. Since the protests began last year, every Saturday at 2pm a group of people, mainly from Calgary’s Syrian community hold a rally for this cause. On this day people associated with the Occupy Calgary also decided to hold a rally for the same cause, and were present when I was there. I was only there for a limited time, so didn’t see who came and left before and after. I’m not sure how much the two groups interacted.

A couple days after I found this video of the day, which shows more people and activity than when I passed by.

This day, I ended up doing a photo stroll from 17 Ave SW to 16 Ave NE in Calgary, doing a mix of political rallies, street photography, and architecture. It was cold at first, but warmed up. Overall a nice day, despite messing up with a camera setting for most shots.
