Ottawa Convergence to End Immigration Detention

Jun/12/2014 - 12:01 pm

12:30pm, Sunday June 15
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.

Part of the International Conference on Penal Abolition. Please register here. It's FREE.

SIGN UP: Caravans leaving from across Ontario (June 12 - 15). Please fill out this form if you'd like to join us or need billets: http://bit.ly/1iIY9ew.

This action is coordinated in conjunction with immigration detainees imprisoned and on strike inside Lindsay, Ontario's, max-security Central East Correctional Centre.
