Toronto: Emergency Action with Hunger Striking Migrants

Around 50 immigration detainees have been hunger striking since July 11th to call for an end to their maximum security indefinite immigration detention. They have requested a meeting with Minister Ralph Goodale who has ignored them. 15 people have died in immigration detention, 3 in just the last five months under the current Liberal government. On Tuesday, July 19, Immigration Minister John McCallum is holding a secretive invitation only ‘consultation’ on immigration at 25 St Clair East. Join us at 9am as we bring the voices and names of those who have died, and those that are imprisoned without trial or charges to Minister McCallum. Join us to insist that the federal government cannot simply look away as dozens of Black and Brown migrants starve themselves just to be heard.
