Dawn raids tear immigrant workers from their families

Undocumented people and their allies are encouraged to learn their rights at: http://toronto.nooneisillegal.org/knowyourrights. If you know of someone who has been detained and requires legal assistance, or if you want to join us in responding to these raids, contact nooneisillegal@riseup.net.

UPDATE - August 16, 2014: CBSA has now confirmed that 21 people have been detained through "vehicle safety sweeps" supported by Ontario Provincial Police and Ontario Ministry of Transportation. Other sources continue to insist over 50 arrests. Irrespective of the number of detentions, we oppose immigration raids, detentions and deportations. We insist that Ontario should not do the federal government's dirty work.

CONFRONTING AUTHORITY: FILM LAUNCH & DISCUSSION
60 Lowther Avenue (Friends House) | May 15 | 7pm

Join us: www.facebook.com/events/550644838389366/

On May 15, NOII-TO hosts a night at the movies. Join us for an evening of building resistance to immigration enforcement as we launch our latest film Migrants: Know Your Rights, a compilation of strategies that migrants can use to defend themselves against detention and deportations. With contributions from many local activist organizers and based on legal materials produced by the Immigration Legal Committee of NOII-TO and the Law Union of Ontario, this 25 minute film is grassroots filmmaking in action.

Featuring an introduction by award winning documentary film director and producer, Min Sook Lee (El Contrato, Borderless, Hogtown), and a moderated discussion with community organizers on the front-lines of the struggle for migrant justice, the event will be a space for our communities to gather, learn, and discuss strategies to take the fight to push immigration enforcement out of our lives to the next level.

Migrants: Know Your Rights materials have been developed by contributions from many organizers over a three year participatory process, designed to link our campaigns for access to services, and an end to detentions and deportations. The film presents a compilation of strategies that migrants can use to defend themselves against detentions.
