While substantial, the crowd was smaller than the estimated more than 1,000 people that turned out for a similar rally in the same location last weekend.
“The war is not over — the bombs are still killing civilians in Ukraine. People are losing their homes, savings, assets, and most importantly — their lives,” organizers wrote in a Facebook post for the event.
“It is our duty as people of this city to show support and stand in a united front against Russian invasion and annexation of a sovereign state.”
Organizers are also calling on supporters to donate to Ukrainian aid and to pressure Canadian politicians to take a stronger stance against Russia.
Another rally is scheduled for Sunday at 1 p.m. at Vancouver’s Jack Poole Plaza.
