No one is illegal?

These are must check websites. They are in the same vein as the misguided activism and propaganda detailed in this post: May 29, 06 #1: Propaganda, Kyoto, Activists, NRTEE, Global Justice. That may be compared to the scientific data detailed in this post: May 29, 06 #2: Kyoto, Scientists & Data

There were marches in at least four places across Canada in support of illegal aliens in Canada. Previously, I had posted this: FHTR May 5, 2006 #1

No One Is Illegal & Don't Ask, Don't Tell [DAD] General Meeting

History on the internet is ephemeral, disappearing at the click of a mouse. The website I referenced has disappeared ( )-- but Google cached a copy.

Why were Members of the Parliament of Canada, MP Olivia Chow (NDP) and MP Borys Wrzesnewskyj (Liberal) participating in supporting illegal aliens in Canada? (Toronto) They have sworn to uphold the laws of Canada and these people are illegals. Did they check out the connections to a group in Montreal called Anti-Capitalist Convergence? Its international network?

Do all those who contribute to the CAW, the Canadian Auto Workers union of Canada wish their union to support the idea that "No one is illegal"? See website for evidence.

The No one is Illegal campaign of Montreal is part of a worldwide movement of resistance for justice and the right to self-determination for (im)migrants, ...

Immigrants and refugees all over the world are being scapegoated for crime, economic problems and the threat of "terrorism".

[....] Now we are part of a new network of groups, who have come together to say NO ONE IS ILLEGAL.

[....] Not just to lobby the government for legal rights (though that's essential work), but also to help people find places to live, under the table work, health care, safe ways to cross borders. No One is Illegal networks worked with artists and activists too, to question our very idea of borders, to do anti-racist education, to put on fundraising and consciousness-raising concerts.

[....] In Montreal, for instance, NOII works alongside the Action Committee of Non-Status Algerians, to prevent the deportation of almost 1,000 Algerian refugee claimants. .... The Committee has held weekly protests at the Quebec Ministry of Immigration, and big marches that have brought hundreds of supporters to the streets. In October 2002, they won the right to apply for landed immigrant status under a special process, for most of the 1,000 people immediately affected. But not everyone is able to apply or get landed status, and many still face deportation. .... For more about the non-status Algerians in Quebec ....


Mass mobilization:

* We will organize demonstrations, pickets, and other events to publicize our demands and to concretely support communities and community members.

* We support direct action, and honour the tactics developed by people resisting on their own behalf.

* We will build and participate in demonstrations against US war and imperialism, against the occupation of Iraq and Palestine, and in support of First Nations sovereignty in Canada.

Network building:

* We will connect with other groups working on these issues across Canada.

* We will contact and share information with groups internationally.

[Link and telephone number for contact are on the site.]
