Car wash for a cause: Hoodstock Lav-o-Thon

leave a comment »

timthumb.phpIf you wake up tomorrow morning and decide that your car needs a wash, or even if your car doesn’t really need one – take a drive up to the Super C at the corner of Lacordaire and Henri-Bourassa. That’s where the lav-o-thon fundraiser for Hoodstock ’09 is taking place.

What’s Hoodstock, you ask? There will be more to post about it soon, but Aug. 9th will mark the one year anniversary of the shooting of Fredy Villanueva by a Montreal police officer. Hoodstock will be two days of music, discussions and workshops to reflect on a senseless death and what we can must take from it.

While I don’t like the ‘ticking time-bomb’ metaphor used by the journalist, Hoodstock co-organiser Will Prosper gives a good rundown of the event in the Montreal Gazette.
