Emergency Vigil: No More Deaths in Immigration Detention!

12819281_908687752581602_4884663187356115438_oWHAT: Emergency Vigil Against Deaths in Immigration Detention
WHEN: 630pm, Tuesday, March 15, 2016
WHERE: CBSA Offices, 74 Victoria Street

Two immigration detainees have died in the custody of the Canadian Border Services Agency in less than a week.

Melkioro Gahungu was the 13th person to die in immigration detention custody since 2000. He hung himself earlier this week rather than be deported.

On Sunday, Francisco Javier Romero Astorga became the 14th. He died suddenly early Sunday at Maplehurst Correctional Complex, in Milton.

It’s time to end the deaths, it’s time to end immigration detention. Come out to the vigil and honour those who have died and demand change.
