Vancouver's Left Front

The Left Front is a broad group of activists from diverse organizations in Vancouver, BC. We meet and work independent of parties, grounded in a common commitment to autonomous grassroots movements. Our aim is to cultivate space for grassroots politics within our city and beyond. The Left Front works to connect social movements in order to affect policy and generate dialogue that reflects the realities of the renter-majority, marginalized communities and the working class living in one of the most unaffordable cities in the world.

WE ARE A COLLECTIVE

#Cascadia Now? An Independence Movement.

#Cascadia Now?

There is a separatist movement building slowly in the Pacific Northwest. Its speed reflects the pace of the people outside of its metropolitan centers.  It is not your typical movement based on the right and left spectrum, nor is it necessarily about protecting a certain culture. More so, it is about creating one, building off the foundation of what already goes on in the westernmost bioregion. It is about decentralizing two governments that seem to disregard what the population wants on the West Coast. The movement calls for a new sovereign state: Cascadia.
