On the Justice of Tearing Down Fences and Dismantling Borders

A Joint Statement of No One Is Illegal Toronto, No One Is Illegal Vancouver, No One Is Illegal Halifax, No One Is Illegal Montreal and No One Is Illegal Ottawa – April 28, 2011

No One Is Illegal groups continue to struggle on the streets for migrant justice across North America against increasingly repressive and racist immigration controls. We join together once again this year with workers around the world during May Day demonstrations to assert our dignity and affirm international solidarity with those who dare to challenge borders and capitalism. We also take our struggle to the courts where a member of No One Is Illegal, Jaggi Singh, is pleading guilty to counseling to commit mischief and is facing six months in prison (INFO: www.clac-montreal.net/jaggi), for rightfully asserting that the G20 security fence was illegitimate and courageously calling for it to be torn down!

Joint Statement of No One Is Illegal Toronto, No One Is Illegal Vancouver, No One Is Illegal Halifax, No One Is Illegal Montreal and No One Is Illegal Ottawa

No Fences, No Borders!
No One Is Illegal, Canada Is Illegal!

As most of you have heard, from June 25th to 27th the world’s richest countries (the G8 and G20) will send their poli-trickers and banking elite, along with heads of the EU, IMF and World Bank, to meet in Huntsville and then in Toronto. They will be talking bailouts, corporate green-washing, and how to further deepen their own and their friends’ pockets. The G8 and G20 countries and their corporations make most of the weapons on the planet, profit from war, subsidize oil corporations and massive industrial projects, and are responsible for pushing millions out of their homes each year. Migrants arriving in G20 countries are treated as exploitable labour - fenced in to precarious work - and often living in fear of detention and deportation.

An Invitation: No One Is Illegal Resists the G8/G20!

>> The G8/G20 countries impose borders, celebrate temporary worker programs and support racist Immigration policies. This means that we are exploited, abused and live in daily fear.

>> The G8/G20 countries cause massive environmental damage. This means that families in the ‘Third World’ are unable to live with dignity and are being forced out of their homes.

>> The G8/G20 ‘leaders’ created the economic crisis and refuse to hold banks accountable. This means job loss and poverty for migrant communities.

>> The G8/G20 countries create most of the weapons in the world and support policing and wars on poor communities. This means suffering and death in countries of the South, and in poor and people of color communities here in Canada.

>> The G8/G20 Summits are spending over $1.2 billion on fences and checkpoints in our city, creating borders that will divide people. Torontonians will face an armed camp for a few days which is a daily reality for millions around the world.

>> The G8 and G20 Summits are a meeting of the people that make the rules that hurt us in our streets, at our workplaces and in our homes. The Summit itself, as well as the decisions they make must be opposed by all who struggle for immigrant rights and migrant justice.

In direct opposition to the G20 policies, No One Is Illegal-Toronto invites you to:
