UPDATE & CALL FOR SUPPORT FROM HUSSAN FREEDOM COMMITTEE

Posted in

September 30, 2010

Syed Hussan, 26, an organiser with No One Is Illegal-Toronto and the Toronto Community Mobilization Network was swarmed by a group of plain clothes police-officers, thrown into an unmarked van and driven away on the morning of Saturday, June 26th, as part of a ‘preventative’ mass arrest of community organizers before the largest day of G20 summit protests even began.

Following his release on extremely restrictive house arrest conditions, Hussan has been unable to get his work permit renewed and is facing inadmissibility proceedings even though he has a study permit application pending. In the coming weeks, Hussan may require immense public and political support to stop possible deportation and we will be updating you accordingly.

Beloved & Respected Community Organizer Behind Bars! Toronto Communities Demand His Release

Posted in

Released: 26 June, 2010 (while Hussan was still in Jail)

Syed Hussan, 26, an organiser with No One Is Illegal-Toronto and the Toronto Community Mobilization Network was swarmed by a group of plain clothes police-officers, thrown into an unmarked van and driven away while on his way to the Labour March at Queen’s Park on the morning of Saturday, June 26th, as part of a mass arrest of community organizers before the largest day of summit protests even began.

“I see this as a failed attempt to instill fear into our movements and silence dissent,” said organiser Farrah Miranda, who witnessed the arrest. “Hussan has unwavering support from many communities across this city who respect his outstanding contributions to social justice-based initiatives.”
