SO FAR ACTIONS IN: CANADA (15 LOCATIONS), FRANCE, SPAIN, UK, US…
Migrants’ movements in Canada are organising to demand regularization of undocumented migrants’ status on and around 17th September.
Without immigration status, asylum seekers and other undocumented migrants are left destitute, deprived of basic rights, health care, decent housing and other resources. Women are particularly disadvantaged as the primary carers for children and other loved ones and live with the fear of their children being taken by the State.
In 2021, the Canadian government promised regularisation, but has done nothing. The time to regularize is now! Regularisation is currently a demand of several undocumented migrants movements in France, Spain, Belgium and elsewhere. A victory in Canada could strengthen asylum seekers and other migrants everywhere, at a time when even in the UK an established organisation is demanding regularisation.
Join us on Friday for a gathering before we deliver our message to the embassy. If you cannot attend, email the Canadian Government (model letter) and circulate #StatusForAll on social media!
