Ottawa Solidarity Action with Migrant Hunger Strikers!

On Tuesday October 8th 2013, a delegation from No One is Illegal (NOII) – Ottawa visited Minister Madeleine Meilleur’s office in Ottawa to show our support and solidarity for the nearly 200 immigration detainees who have been on hunger strike in Lindsey, Ontario since September 17, 2013.   As the Provincial Minister of Community Safety and Correctional Services, Minister Meilleur has a responsibility to listen to and address the concerns of the immigration detainees.  The delegation of NOII-Ottawa members joined family members of detainees, supporters and community members across Ontario to protest and speak out against indefinite immigration detentions and the cruel prison conditions immigration detainees’ face in Ontario and across Canada.
NOII-Ottawa strongly opposes indefinite immigration detentions and the atrocious conditions immigration detainees are forced to endure across Canada!
NOII-Ottawa supports and stands in solidarity with all immigration detainees, their families, and all others affected.
NOI-Ottawa also calls for an end to detentions and an end to deportations!
