From September 18-20, 2020, just days before politicians return to Parliament, a single message echoed from St. John’s to Vancouver and Montreal to Sudbury; from migrant workers, refugees, undocumented people, international students and allies: we demand full and permanent immigration status for all now.
This Wednesday, the Trudeau government will announce its priorities and its plan for the new session of Parliament. Opposition parties will have to decide where they stand and who they are willing to fight for. We have no time to lose. We need you to help us get louder! Take action by calling on PM Trudeau to ensure Status for All.
We have seen how the economic and social crisis that came to a head with COVID-19 has forced millions into deeper poverty and economic exploitation, while leaving the richest few unscathed. There can be no recovery without undoing the economic, political, and social systems that produced these inequalities. And that means a full overhaul of an immigration system that has tipped the scales against racialized migrants for so long. A fair society, a just society, means full immigration status now.
But no matter what happens this week, we will keep organizing for justice. Each of us has a role to play. We must bring more people into the movement because it is only together that we will win.
