If you haven't yet, please sign and share this petition: http://chn.ge/1lbFvON. It has a lot of useful information contextualizing what happened.

Know Your Rights guides and video that provide basic information to people without immigration status are available in English, French and Spanish: www.toronto.nooneisillegal.org/knowyourrights

WHAT IS A SANCTUARY PROVINCE: We are calling on Ontario to make all Ontario services and protections fully accessible to Ontarians without full immigration status. This means, no requests for immigration identification for social entitlements and protections, and no sharing of immigration status information with federal authorities. Absolutely no coordination or resources sharing between any Ontario agency and Federal immigration authorities.

Here is a chronology of events:

Reportback from Wynne Don't Do Harper's Dirty Work rally and march

Toronto -- Over 50 of us protested outside the Ontario Ministry of Corrections on Monday August 18th, against the early morning raids, racial profiling, and detention of undocumented workers that took place August 14th, 2014. Under the guise of a "vehicle safety stop," Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) supported by Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) and Ministry of Transportation officials racially profiled, forcefully ID checked, arrested and detained at least 21 migrants who were on their way to work, some arrested on foot, in the Jane and Finch and surrounding neighbourhoods.

Under the guise of a "routine traffic stop," Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) and Ministry of Transportation officials racially profiled, forcefully IDd, arrested and detained at least 21 immigrants and handed them over to Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) last week in the Jane and Finch and surrounding neighbourhoods. In detention, many were forced to sign documents waiving their rights that weren't adequately translated. Now our friends and family members face indefinite detention, deportation and separation from their families simply for trying to put food on the table.

Join us at 5:00 pm this Tuesday to find out how to defend yourself and know your rights in the face of racist police and immigration enforcement officers. Call for an end to detentions and deportations and demand that Kathleen Wynne stop doing Harper's dirty work. No racial profiling! No anti-immigrant raids! Members of our community should not live in fear! We welcome everyone in our community, with or without immigration papers!
