Cross-Country Day of Action for Status for All, July 4
Rallies are planned in Canada in Picton, Richmond, Montreal and Toronto on Saturday.
The Migrants Rights Network in coalition with other national and local groups has organized a Cross-Country Day of Action for Status for All in Canada for July 4, 2020.
On the Toronto event page the organizers state:
Juan López Chaparro died last Saturday. He was the 3rd migrant farmworker to die to due to COVID-19, following Bonifacio Eugenio Romero and Rogelio Santos Muñoz.
Farmworkers have been facing dangerous working and living conditions for years but cannot speak out because of the threat of deportation. All migrants need full immigration status now to be able to protect themselves.
Join us for a socially distanced rally...Saturday, July 4 to say not one more death, and full status for all: undocumented migrants, temporary foreign workers, careworkers, international students, refugees. Young or old, working or not, criminalized or not. End the systemic racism! Equal people means equal migration status!
Organizers of the rallies are asking participants to socially distance and wear masks.
Supporters can also sign their petition SEND A MESSAGE: COVID-19 RESPONSE & RECOVERY MUST ENSURE MIGRANT RIGHTS. To date it has over 8,700 signatures.
For more details on the rallies, as well as links to posters, flyers and other resources you can visit their website.
