On behalf of CAPA, I would particularly like to acknowledge the work of Toronto Rape Crisis Centre/Multicultural Women Against Rape for their efforts with sign-making and Ontario Coalition Against Poverty, which supplied the vast majority of the marshals.
A special thanks also to all the artists, who donated so generously of their time, and helped to breathe life into our struggle against electroshock. –Bonnie Burstow
