People who attended Occupy Regina in 2011 and early 2012, will remember meeting Stella Rogers. Regrettably, Stella passed away this February in B.C. Stella rose to fame by fearlessly introducing herself to everyone at the Victoria Park camp site, and staying involved in working on “homeless” issues in the months after. She was interviewed on CBC Radio, when a generous donor offered to pay a few months rent to assist people who Occupy Regina had been helping before the City and Police evicted the protesters and the homeless they’d been helping.
I last saw her in the Summer of 2012, assisting her with her tiny Android phone so she could stay in touch with people on Facebook.
