No One Is Illegal!
May Day of Action
Rally and March
2 May – 1pm
Meet: Sherbourne and Carlton

Migrants, poor and working people; undocumented people and people of colour live in constant crisis in Canada. A crisis has always existed in Teesdale, in Regent Park, in farm fields, on factory floors and in hotel service areas.

Power is controlled by global economic and political elites who have made large metropolitan cities their home. From here, they supervise people’s oppression from Turtle Island to Afghanistan to Palestine.

Canada, like other governments, bends to their demands, passing discriminatory laws like Bill C-50 without consultation.

The Conservative government is using the economic crisis as an excuse to increase immigration enforcement; steal public funds; wreck social services; take away people’s jobs rather than cut profits and target those they perceive as the weakest – indigenous people; the homeless; failed refugee claimants; women in shelters; nannies; factory workers and temporary workers.

We say enough is enough. No One Is Illegal!

The struggle of workers – waged and unwaged, with or without immigration status – is against these powerful elites and these systems of oppression.

Citizenship, jobs and houses – granted to some and denied to others – are tools to divide us. But we will not be divided.

We demand an end to detentions and deportations; we demand access without fear to essential services; we demand an end to security certificates and secret trials, and a full and inclusive regularization program. We demand justice and dignity.

On May 2nd, take to the streets, take back power. Raise your fists. Resist.
