Fighting unjust immigration policies

As we fight for freedom to move, return and stay, we organize against unjust immigration policies. This includes public education on impacts of regressive laws, protests and direct actions to stop the laws from passing, confronting decision makers and building pressure in the mainstream media.

FACTSHEET: Border Rights for Refugees

Share widely: https://noii-van.resist.ca/?p=6487

Thousands of refugees are crossing the Canada-U.S. border, many fleeing escalated sociopolitical, white supremacist, misogynist violence and I.C.E raids in the U.S.

Let Them In! Let Them Stay!

Urgent: Federal cabinet ministers are meeting on March 7th to discuss asylum seekers from the US and whether or not Canada should scrap the Safe Third Country Agreement (STCA) -- an unjust law that turns many asylum seekers away at the Canadian land border if they entered via the US, because it assumes the US is a safe country.

But Trump’s America is anything but safe. Today, Trump’s new executive order on immigration was announced, effectively barring migrants from six Muslim majority countries and shutting down the entire US refugee system for 120 days. Trump also continues to order immigration raids across the country, sweeping up undocumented people and asylum seekers who could be persecuted or killed if they’re deported. The US is not safe, and Canada must #LetThemIn and #LetThemStay.

Harper's gone. Trudeau is in. The struggle continues.

Over 16 million Canadian citizens voted in yesterday’s election, the highest voter turnout since at least 1997. The result: Stephen Harper’s decade of conservative, anti-immigrant, and racist rule comes to an end, and the Liberal Party’s Justin Trudeau is now Prime Minister.

While many rejoice at the end of the Harper government, we also know that the new Liberal government must be met with radical, collective, strategic organizations, and mobilizations if we are to improve the lives of our communities.
