Resistance Flags Fly at CBC Headquarters

On August 25 2008, following the closing ceremonies of the Beijing Olympics, dozens of people converged at CBC Headquarters in Toronto to publicly declare resistance to the Vancouver Winter Olympics in 2010.

Organized by No One Is Illegal-Toronto but including a diverse network of groups and individuals, we collectively raised the anti-Olympic flag at the Opening Ceremonies of the resistance against the Vancouver Olympics, the G8 meetings, and the Security and Prosperity Partnership conventions, all occurring in Canada in 2010.

The No One Is Illegal Student Network presents the award winning film by Joseph Mathew and Dan Devivo, Crossing Arizona.

Heightened security in California and Texas has pushed border-crossers into the treacherous Arizona desert in unprecedented numbers – an estimated 4,500 a day. Most are men in search of work, but increasingly the border-crossers are women and children seeking to reunite with their families. This influx of migrants crossing through Arizona and the attendant rising death toll have elicited complicated feelings about human rights, culture, class, labor and national security.

LET SAAD STAY!

Tuesday, September 30
12noon
Sidney Smith Hall (100 St. George Street)

Students and Community members from across Toronto will rally at U of T to protect one of their own.

Saad Alam, 23, a student of Life Sciences and Psychology at U of T and his parents face imminent deportation to Bangladesh, unless the Minister of Immigration intervenes to grant him status.

Five years ago Saad Alam and his parents came to Canada. Shammi and Badrul Alam took two jobs each working day and night to put their son through school. Forced to pay international tuition, Saad, too took on jobs, working in restaurants for less than minimum wage.

For Immigration Canada, this was not enough!

Saad and his family's study and work permits have been withdrawn. A departure order has been issued to the family and they are scheduled to leave on 03 October 2008.

Start: 6:30 pm

No 2010 OlympicsALL OUT ON OCTOBER 13 - THANKSGIVING MONDAY

Meet at 12 Noon Sharp!
Union Station (corner of Front and York)
Free Transportation

Email nooneisillegal@riseup.net for seat confirmation
OR meet at Cooksville GO Station at 1pm

On October 13, 2008, the CPR (Canadian Pacific Railway)'s 'Spirit Train' will be arriving at Cooksville GO Transit Station in Mississauga, here to continue its goal of spreading pre-Olympic "spirit".

The Vancouver Winter Olympics 2010 are appropriating indigenous land, marginalizing the urban poor and exploiting migrant workers.

The 2010 Olympics spirit that this train carries is a spirit of racism and corporate greed. This spirit has met with opposition in each of its stops across the country.

This spirit of oppression needs to be met with our spirit of resistance.

When it stops in Mississauga, come out with pots, pans, whistles, flags and placards. As most of Canada gives thanks for the ongoing genocide of indigenous peoples on Turtle Island, we urge all allies to mobilize their communities to disrupt the Spirit Train in solidarity with the call for Indigenous sovereignty.
