National Video Competition: No One Is Illegal! Stop Immigration Canada’s Racism

Posted in

No One Is Illegal-Toronto, No One Is Illegal-Vancouver and rabble.ca are pleased to announce the official launch of the 2009-2010 “No One Is Illegal! Stop Immigration Canada’s Racism!” National Video Competition.

Youth are invited to take a stand against racism with us! Jason Kenney, Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism, has continued a trend of cutting funding for settlement agencies, breaking the refugee system and increasing temporary work programs. These are acts of racist discrimination. Now Kenney has called for a video competition called ‘Racism. Stop it!’ This is another attempt to fool us in to thinking that Immigration Canada is not racist. The “No One Is Illegal! Stop Immigration Canada’s Racism!” National Video Competition is a contest which invites youth, to submit short videos (45 to 60 seconds) on their thoughts about Canada’s racist immigration system. This initiative will reach thousands of people across Turtle Island through community migrant justice networks, educators and youth, and through features with our media sponsor rabble.ca.

NONE IS TOO MANY: Canada is failing to protect refugees

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

NONE IS TOO MANY: Canada is failing to protect refugees

Toronto - July 16, 2009: Concerned community groups will hold a Press Conference on Thursday July 16, 2009 at 11:30 a.m. at Roma Community Centre at CultureLink, 2340 Dundas West (Crossways Mall), Suite 301, Toronto (follow Culturelink sign on main floor, go to 3rd Floor)

Community groups are deeply concerned about Canada’s recent decision to impose a visa on those countries, effectively shutting the door on Czech Roma and Mexican refugee who seek protection in Canada.

“Immigration Minister Jason Kenny appears to think that Roma don’t face state-sanctioned persecution in the Czech Republic” said Roma Community Centre Vice President Bill Bila. “Yet Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch have stated publicly that the Czech Republic has failed to protect Roma from discrimination and abuse at the hands of public officials and private individuals” he said.

War, Occupation and Economic starvation push people out of their homes,
forcing them to migrate.

This, we oppose.

We demand an immediate end to these policies in Canada, in Haiti, in Afghanistan, in Iraq
and in Palestine.

Homophobia, Transphobia, Racism and Sexism are the ideologies of imperialism and oppression.

The Canadian Immigration system denies protection to queer migrants erasing our struggles and exploiting us as commodities.

Immigration enforcement still operates to exclude queers and targets the LGBTTIQQ2S community every day.

This, we oppose.

Toronto ignores queer newcomers without full status pushing us away from our communities of support.

This, we oppose.
