Women Occupy Vancouver Police Station to Demand an Investigation into Missing and Murdered Women

Three women are arrested after they occupy a downtown Vancouver Police Department station to bring attention to missing and murdered women. Ashley Machisknic, a 22 year old was found brutally murdered on September 15th, 2010. Her death is the latest to plague Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, one of the poorest postal codes in Canada. As with her death and the hundreds of other missing and murdered women in British Columbia, the Canadian authorities have not addressed community concerns for speedy and accountable investigations, prompting direct citizen action against them.
