NO ONE IS ILLEGAL (TORONTO) NEEDS YOUR HELP!

NO ONE IS ILLEGAL (TORONTO) NEEDS YOUR HELP! BUILD THE MOVEMENT FOR MAY DAY 2012 AND STATUS FOR ALL!

NOII - Toronto is happy to announce that we've finally set up our monthly sustainers system, meaning we can now accept continuing contributions from allies looking to support our work! In the buildup to this year's May Day marches, we're hoping to lay the foundation for our upcoming work against Harper's colonial, racist deportation machine - we'd like to be able to get an office, bring our Know Your Rights trainings to as many spaces in the city as possible, build an anchor of urban support for Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug in their struggle to defend their land, and expand our network of allies more broadly.

Conservatives using No One Is Illegal to distract from anti-immigrant record, Refugee Exclusion Act (Bill C-31)

Posted in

Canada, Turtle Island - Immigrant and refugee rights groups from Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver were brought up in Parliament yesterday [1] and targetted in a press release by Minister of Deportation Jason Kenney [2]. The Tories have charged that No One Is Illegal is "not simply another noisy activist group but hard-line anti-Canadian extremists".

However as Sozan Savehilaghi from No One Is Illegal - Vancouver Coast Salish Territories notes, "It seems as if everyone who is a dissident and stands up for equality and social and environmental justice is an extremist in Harper's corporate Canada", referring to Tory government recently targeting Indigenous communities and environmentalists against Enbridge pipeline also as "extremist"‘.

Jason Kenney, Minister of Censorship and Deportation, is making headlines again with yet another parliamentary scandal. A series of access to information requests have revealed that Kenney's office organized a bogus citizenship ceremony broadcast on Sun Media (the aspiring Fox News Network of Canada). “Let’s do it. We can fake the oath,” said one Sun staffer, and arranged for six federal bureaucrats to stand in as "immigrants." Kenney has refused to apologize for this disgusting photo-op.

BACKGROUND

No One Is Illegal - Toronto Statement on G20 Conspiracy Plea Resolution

Posted in

On Tuesday, November 22nd 2011, 17 community organizers – including No One Is Illegal - Toronto’s own Syed Hussan – charged with G20 related “conspiracy” charges, entered into a ‘plea deal’ with the Crown. The plea saw eleven of the 17 G20 defendants getting their charges dropped, while the remaining six – Leah, Mandy, Alex, Peter, Eric, and Adam – will face jail time ranging from 3 to 16 months. Today, on Monday, November 28, Eric, Adam and Peter will begin their jail sentences.

It’s been 17 months since that week in June 2010, when more than 40,000 of us took to the streets in Toronto to fight back against an expensive and exploitative summit whose only real goal was the furthering of corporate greed, military expansion, wars, displacement and environmental destruction. 17 months since the Canadian police and government waged an explicit and overt war against any dissent making itself too visible on the streets; a war that included the largest spy operation, and the largest mass arrest (1,100 people) in Canadian history. All justified by a billion dollar “security” tag.

17 months since organizers were snatched off the streets, threatened with assault, assaulted, beaten and had their doors broken down in pre-dawn house raids. 17 months since activists and organizers visible and vocal in demonstrating opposition to G20 policies were charged with various “conspiracy” and “counseling” charges and forced to go through extended pre-trial detentions, highly restrictive house arrest and endure constant surveillance.
