Solidarity action with migrant strikers!
On Tuesday October 8th, join together with family members, supporters and communities across Ontario to speak out against prison conditions and indefinite detention in support of nearly 200 immigration detainees who have been on strike since September 17. Actions are being planned in eight cities across Ontario. We plan to deliver petitions to MPP offices across the province in support of strikers demands. In Ottawa, we are also planning a delegation to Minister Madeleline Meilleur at 10:00am to show our support for migrants on hunger strike. Raids on precarious migrant workers in Vancouver were filmed earlier this year for television entertainment. Why is the largest jailed migrant strike in recent history not being screened? This historic moment requires our attention.
