Ottawa launch of End Immigration Detention campaign
Migrants in a maximum security prison in Lindsay Ontario have been on strike since September 17, 2013. They have refused to enter their cells, boycotted their detention reviews and have been on hunger strike - 2 of them for over 60 days. Striking detainees have been deported, locked up in segregation, denied medical services and transferred to other prisons. Inspired by their actions, migrant justice organizers in solidarity have formed the End Immigration Detention Network.
