From The Vancouver Sun
There have been a lot of memorable rock concerts in Vancouver. But there’s never been anything quite like the Anti-Canada Day punk rock show in Stanley Park on July 1, 1978.
It was billed as an Anti-Canada Day concert because it was put on by anarchists, including Ken Lester, one of the organizers of the 1971 “Smoke-In” by hippies that turned into the Gastown Riot.
Being anarchists, they didn’t believe in getting a permit — a poster just said the show would be at Lumbermen’s Arch at 1 p.m.
In a way, the contemporary anarchist does not seek to make life better under the current conditions of exploitation and extraction, but tries, rather, to figure out how to bring things to the point of collapse. Because the system itself is what must be opposed—a representative democracy within which only rich, white people are represented.
