9th Annual May Day of Action. Rally and March.
5:30pm, Allan Gardens, Toronto

On May 1st, International Workers Day, we will march to reclaim May Day for just people's struggles and to Honour Our Communities. We are unified in our fight against poverty and capitalism. We oppose attacks on rights and income of workers, irrespective of status. We demand an end to immigration detention because no one is illegal. We will continue our support for Indigenous peoples' movements for self-determination. We oppose colonialism. We are in solidarity with struggles against Canadian imperialism. We insist on an end to environmental destruction. We resist patriarchy, racism, ableism, homophobia and transphobia both in our day-to-day work and as larger systems of oppression. Join Us!

No One Is Illegal Toronto Presents

CONFRONTING AUTHORITY: FILM LAUNCH & DISCUSSION
60 Lowther Avenue (Friends House) | May 15 | 7pm

On May 15, NOII-TO hosts a night at the movies. Join us for an evening of building resistance to immigration enforcement as we launch our latest film Migrants: Know Your Rights, a compilation of strategies that migrants can use to defend themselves against detention and deportations. With contributions from many local activist organizers and based on legal materials produced by the Immigration Legal Committee of NOII-TO and the Law Union of Ontario, this 25 minute film is grassroots filmmaking in action.

Featuring an introduction by award winning documentary film director and producer, Min Sook Lee (El Contrato, Borderless, Hogtown), and a moderated discussion with community organizers on the front-lines of the struggle for migrant justice, the event will be a space for our communities to gather, learn, and discuss strategies to take the fight to push immigration enforcement out of our lives to the next level.

Migrants: Know Your Rights materials have been developed by contributions from many organizers over a three year participatory process, designed to link our campaigns for access to services, and an end to detentions and deportations. The film presents a compilation of strategies that migrants can use to defend themselves against detentions.
