On April 2nd and 3rd, over 100 temporary and undocumented workers were attacked by armed border guards, dragged in to detention and are now being forcibly deported. On 2 May, thousands of us will say Enough!

Migrants, poor and working people; undocumented people and people of colour live in constant crisis in Canada, attacked daily. A crisis has always existed in Teesdale, in Regent Park, in farm fields, on factory floors and in hotel service areas.

Corporate and political elites are using the current 'Economic Crisis' as an excuse to attack poor, working-class and racialized communities by increasing immigration enforcement; stealing public funds; wrecking social services; taking away people's jobs rather than cutting profits and targeting those they perceive as the weakest - indigenous people; the homeless; refugee claimants; women in shelters; queer and trans migrants, caregivers; factory workers and temporary workers.

22 May at 7pm
63 Gould Street (Ryerson University)
with speakers from NY, Montreal and Toronto

Join Students for Medicare and No One is Illegal as we bring together
health professionals, organizing alongside their communities in the fight
for health for all!

Health care professionals are on the front lines of care every day, and
are direct witnesses to the inadequate resources and access to health care
facing many marginalized populations in our own communities. It is during
their professional lives that health care providers realize that just
showing up to the clinic will not be enough to make everyone well.

This evening will provide opportunities to discuss the difference between
patient advocacy and patient solidarity. We will learn from example how
community members and health care professionals have used creativity to
build safer, healthier communities and a healthy analysis of what it is
