No One Is Illegal Toronto Presents

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

Join us: www.facebook.com/events/550644838389366/

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.

On June 10th, join us in City Council to make sure Toronto implement the Sanctuary City policy that it promised immigrants without full status in February 2014. Please write to you Councilors in advance and urge them to support Motion 29.11.

Motion 29.11 is what we've been waiting for - concrete steps to make a lot of fancy language a living reality for Toronto's undocumented communities. Community mobilization shaped this policy, and it has shaped this implementation plan.

Please talk to your Councillor before - fill out this form to get started:

We need you at City Hall on June 10 to remind Council that you're serious about Toronto being a genuine sanctuary city.

Bring a friend! Free T-shirts!

Meet at Social Sciences Building (FSS) 120 University pvt, University of Ottawa

Over 85,000 people have been detained in immigration jails under Harper's watch. Many of them have been imprisoned indefinitely, with no known release date. Immigration detention tears apart families, taking away migrants' freedom for the crime of being born elsewhere. Join us as we march to immigration control headquarters to demand an end to immigration detention, particularly endless detention, max-security incarceration, and an overhaul of the detention review process.
