Canada: NO ONE IS ILLEGAL

NO ONE IS ILLEGAL: NATIONAL DAY OF ACTION STATUS FOR ALL! MARCH

MAY 27
Meet at O.I.S.E. 1pm (252 Bloor St. W)

Since settling into power, the conservative immigration ministry has used U.S.-style enforcement tactics, such as using children as bait, arresting children in schools, and targeting community members in public places like on the street, in malls, and at subway stops. Community groups and organizations are standing up to fight against these attacks, to fight for access without fear to city services, and to fight for a national regularization program for Status for All the over 500,000 non-status immigrants living and working in this country.

On May 27th, thousands of immigrants, refugees and supporters will take to the streets of the largest cities across Canada to continue this fight, and to commemorate the one-year anniversary of the historic Solidarity Across Borders March, which unified immigrants, refugees and non-status people on the following demands: an end to detentions, deportations, and security certificates, and a demand for a full regularisation program.

In Toronto, trade unions, agencies, students and activists from broad layers of affected immigrant and refugee communities will march across the city, leaving from OISE (252 Bloor St. West) and ending at a city park where we will celebrate the courage and resilience of migrant communities in their continued fight for a full and inclusive regularisation program and access to essential services.

As Immigration Canada increases its targeting of immigrant, refugee and non-status communities, we must stand together and demand justice and dignity. We call for an end to the detention and deportation of our friends and neighbours and for the continued fight against the exploitation of non-status workers.
