Reportback from Wynne Don't Do Harper's Dirty Work rally and march

Posted in

Toronto -- Over 50 of us protested outside the Ontario Ministry of Corrections on Monday August 18th, against the early morning raids, racial profiling, and detention of undocumented workers that took place August 14th, 2014. Under the guise of a "vehicle safety stop," Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) supported by Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) and Ministry of Transportation officials racially profiled, forcefully ID checked, arrested and detained at least 21 migrants who were on their way to work, some arrested on foot, in the Jane and Finch and surrounding neighbourhoods.

Under the guise of a "routine traffic stop," Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) and Ministry of Transportation officials racially profiled, forcefully IDd, arrested and detained at least 21 immigrants and handed them over to Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) last week in the Jane and Finch and surrounding neighbourhoods. In detention, many were forced to sign documents waiving their rights that weren't adequately translated. Now our friends and family members face indefinite detention, deportation and separation from their families simply for trying to put food on the table.

Join us at 5:00 pm this Tuesday to find out how to defend yourself and know your rights in the face of racist police and immigration enforcement officers. Call for an end to detentions and deportations and demand that Kathleen Wynne stop doing Harper's dirty work. No racial profiling! No anti-immigrant raids! Members of our community should not live in fear! We welcome everyone in our community, with or without immigration papers!

No One Is Illegal - Toronto Statement on Israeli Attacks on Gaza

Posted in

No One is Illegal Toronto calls for an immediate end to the ongoing Israeli attacks on Gaza and the Palestinian people. We insist: End the Siege of Gaza!

Israeli air strikes and the subsequent ground invasion have resulted in almost 1300 deaths, majority civilian including over 200 children. The number of dead and injured innocents continues to rise. This callous attack on human life is an extension of Israeli policy that has suffocated life in the occupied territories for 60 years and imprisoned millions in the world's largest open air prison. These attacks and the ongoing occupation of Palestine must end.

Since 1948, millions of Palestinians have been turned into refugees, forced out by the theft of their land. Palestinians today face check-points, an illegal apartheid wall, blockades, bombings, and starvation at the hands of the Israeli government. Food, medical supplies, oil, water, energy and access to education are denied to Palestinians living under Israeli occupation. In the face of this onslaught, Palestinians resist. We in No One Is Illegal - Toronto support that resistance.
