Migrant Justice Activists Disrupt Kenney, Demand Permanent Residency for Migrant Workers

Des activistes pour les droits des migrant(e)s interrompent Kenney et demandent la résidence permanence pour les travailleurs et travailleuses migrant(e)s

Toronto -- Two migrant justice activists from No One Is Illegal - Toronto (NOII-Toronto) disrupted Employment Minister Jason Kenney's press conference this afternoon in Toronto demanding permanent immigration status for migrant workers. This action organized by No One Is Illegal - Toronto and Justicia for Migrant Workers occurred days after changes to the Temporary Foreign Workers Program (TFWP) which make it more difficult for migrant workers to change jobs, and deny them permanent immigration status. The community will stand strong to prevent the largest mass deportation in Canadian history.

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.

June 10: Come to City Hall / Contact your Councilor in advance

Jun/10/2014 - 9:00 am

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:

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1xxbk5eWXGQ9Q2f-WWRq1KNq1hN8voLo6tWFN9b3...

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!

The motion: http://app.toronto.ca/tmmis/viewAgendaItemHistory.do?item=2014.CD29.11
