No One is Illegal Ottawa is a group of im/migrants and allies guided by anti-oppression principles that advocates and fights for the dignity and self determination of all im/migrants regardless of status. This year we kicked off the Solidarity City campaign to ensure that city and social services in the city are open to all migrants regardless of status.
We launched the End Immigration Detention (EIDN) campaign in
Ottawa to support the activities of the broader national campaign. The
EIDN campaign aims to educate the public around migrant detention and to
seek an end to the indefinite detention of migrant families and
In June, we collaborated with migrant justice organizers to
support actions and panels on migrant detention for the ICOPA
conference, and in August we participated in the migration movement
assembly during the People's Social Forum, in Ottawa.
On Nov. 7 last
year, we collaborated with Octopus Books for the Ottawa launch of EIDN
member Tings Chak's book on migrant detention, "Undocumented: The
architecture of migrant detention". We have also continued to support
migrant families in Ottawa facing deportation; seeking sanctuary, and
offering financial, legal and emotional support. We hope to continue our
direct action, campaign organizing, and support work in the next year.
