Mask-Free Grocery Shopping Flash-Mob
at No Frills, twice
Time & Date: 12 noon & 6 pm, Thurs, Sept 30, 2021
Location: Tony & Kathy's No Frills
Address: 3975 Wyandotte St E at George St, Windsor Ontario
Neighbourhoods: Pillette Village

Everyone in Windsor is welcome to participate. Please consider car-pooling with folks who have no vehicle.
Van rides are being arranged to pick folks up and drop them off for the 12 noon and 6 pm groups. Please consider coming to both freedom protests.
Please let us know if you can come.
Contact me here on SaidIt (ie. comment on this post) or message me on Facebook (I may miss you in the ephemeral rapid timelines of the public or private group chats). It would be nice to be prepared with an idea of how many people to expect, what our strengths and limitations are, and have answers for participants.
Our goal is to make this a monthly event.
MANY people have monthly deposits that occur at the end of the month (to pay rent and bills), including seniors, pensioners, retirees, disabled people, and others.
Some folks may choose to skip this time if they don't feel it's solid enough. This first one may be shaky but we will work out the kinks and improve and strengthen over time.
This post can be a template for similar future events, and they need not be limited to once a month. Perhaps we can develop a DIY guide and/or template for organizing Freedom Flash Mobs like this, locally, regionally, provincially, and nationally. Maybe some already exist?
We need advice on how to organize ourselves, how to enter (together or separate), and how to act if and when confronted. Above all we need to be respectful and represent our freedom protest and resistance to tyranny communities with honour.
We are seeking someone with the legal wherewithal and/or legal reference papers to better represent ourselves, if necessary.
This monthly event need not always occur at the same store.
Personally, I do not know if this store is actually a problem, or if their issue is with me specifically (I am not hard to miss) because I've refused to wear a mask. On several occasions I've had their store managers rudely confront me for not wearing a mask, and the second last time I was unjustly banned. Yet, I returned last week and Tony, the actual owner of the franchise store, was polite, quiet, and meek while telling me I couldn't come back. I will continue to refuse to be banned from this store only 0.9km away from my home and be forced to walk (I have no car) well over 2km to the next grocery store (and back 2km with groceries) which is much more expensive.
I deeply apologize for not getting this post out sooner. I was waiting on some info.
Have I forgotten anything?
