On September 17, people locked up in immigration hold at Central East Correction Centre, a max security prison in Lindsay, Ontario, will mark the 1 year anniversary of their ongoing strike against immigration detention. Around September 17th, we will unite to demand an end to unjust immigration controls, and freedom of movement for all our communities.
We are creating people-powered mobilizations with community meetings, public protests and direct actions where ever we are.
Increased immigration detentions and deportations are the direct result of laws that exclude migrant workers, refugees, parents and grandparents, and low-income people from full status. This September, we will challenge Harper’s anti-immigrant agenda. At the same time, we will bring together diverse movements for social and ecological justice to build community visions of just migration.
This isn’t just about Canadian immigration policies. In a world of climate catastrophes, war, economic inequity and increased social oppression, our friends and families are forced to leave their homes here, and around the globe. Indigenous people continue to have their homes and territories made uninhabitable by corporate profiteers acting with government sanction. This September, we will link our struggles against all the forces of displacement.
