Abousfian Abdelrazik is coming home! Finally!
We did it! Wonderful news!

Welcoming Festival
Toronto on Saturday, June 27 at 4.40 PM
International Arrivals Terminal 1

**Please email james.loney@sympatico.ca if you are coming or need a ride Please include your phone number if you need a ride.**

Abousfian Abdelrazik was imprisoned and tortured by Sudan in 2003 at Canada’s request and has been trying to return ever since. He is one of the many people who is being targeted by the arbitrary and racist national security polices being used in the so-called “War on Terror.”

The Canadian government was forced to bring him home after a June 4th court ruling found that his charter right to return to Canada had been violated and ordered that he be repatriated within thirty days.

Dyke March
Saturday, June 27, 2009 - 1:45pm
Starts at Church and Hayden

Pride March
Sunday, June 28, 2009 - 1:45pm
Starts at Church and Bloor

War, Occupation and Economic starvation push people out of their homes,
forcing them to migrate.

This, we oppose.

We demand an immediate end to these policies in Canada, in Haiti, in Afghanistan, in Iraq
and in Palestine.

Homophobia, Transphobia, Racism and Sexism are the ideologies of imperialism and oppression.

The Canadian Immigration system denies protection to queer migrants erasing our struggles and exploiting us as commodities.

Immigration enforcement still operates to exclude queers and targets the LGBTTIQQ2S community every day.

This, we oppose.

Toronto ignores queer newcomers without full status pushing us away from our communities of support.

This, we oppose.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

NONE IS TOO MANY: Canada is failing to protect refugees

Toronto - July 16, 2009: Concerned community groups will hold a Press Conference on Thursday July 16, 2009 at 11:30 a.m. at Roma Community Centre at CultureLink, 2340 Dundas West (Crossways Mall), Suite 301, Toronto (follow Culturelink sign on main floor, go to 3rd Floor)

Community groups are deeply concerned about Canada’s recent decision to impose a visa on those countries, effectively shutting the door on Czech Roma and Mexican refugee who seek protection in Canada.

“Immigration Minister Jason Kenny appears to think that Roma don’t face state-sanctioned persecution in the Czech Republic” said Roma Community Centre Vice President Bill Bila. “Yet Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch have stated publicly that the Czech Republic has failed to protect Roma from discrimination and abuse at the hands of public officials and private individuals” he said.

Thursday July 23, 2009
Start: 1:00 pm
End: 3:00 pm

Please note the change in the plan due to rain:

The rally will be held inside the drop-in space at The Stop Community Food Centre at 1884 Davenport Rd. There will be speakers at the rally followed by breakout discussions in English and Spanish to discuss how we want to continue organizing in defense of migrant rights here in Davenport-West and across the city.

(Organized by the Bread and Bricks Davenport-West Social Justice Group)

No Visa? No Rights?!
DON'T CLOSE THE BORDER ON REFUGEES!
Community Rally & March
Thursday, July 23rd 1:00pm

Meet at the corner of Davenport & Perth (to get there by transit, take the 168 Symington bus from Dundas West station)

Come raise your voice against the Canadian government's recent decision to impose visa requirements on Mexico and the Czech Republic!

Using arbitrary powers, granted to him under Bill C-50, Kenney single-handedly slammed the door on migrants and refugees from Mexico and the Czech Republic last week.
