NEW YEARS EVE 2011: STOP THE COUNTDOWN ON DANIEL'S DEPORTATION

Dec/31/2010 - 11:00 am

11 AM
31 DECEMBER 2010 (New Year's Eve)
FEDERAL COURT OF APPEAL (180 QUEEN WEST)

Daniel Garcia's deportation has been set for Saturday, January 1, 2010 by the Canadian Border Services Agency. An urgent show of community support is needed at 11am on December 31, 2011, at 180 Queen Street West.

Since Daniel Garcia's unjust arrest, a week ago today, over 1,500 of us have signed petitions, nearly 200 of us have written emails and made phone calls, teachers, friends, community leaders, union activists and Members of Parliaments have spoken in support for freedom and status for Daniel Garcia.

Yet, the Greater Toronto Enforcement Centre of the Canadian Border Services Agency has ordered Daniel's deportation on Saturday, January 1, 2010.

An application to get him status has been filed with Citizenship and Immigration Canada. It is essential Daniel's deportation be stopped so that he has the ability to stay in Canada and have access to a fair hearing.

Daniel Garcia fled Mexico from homophobic violence, and has built a life and community in Canada. His lawyer died, he was given incorrect legal advice, and his attempts to maintain status in Canada failed. Now, when it is very likely that Citizenship and Immigration Canada may grant him a Temporary Resident Permit, a deportation date has been set.

The Friends of Daniel Garcia are calling upon all the residents of Toronto, on community leaders, union activists, students, teachers and all who believe in justice to gather at the Federal Court House in support of Daniel Garcia.

Bring signs, placards, and your voices. Demand Status for Daniel Garcia. Status for All.

PLEASE FORWARD WIDELY
