Vancouver

March On Vancouver

We acknowledge that this event will be taking place on the unceded Coast Salish Territories xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ (Tsleil-Waututh).

Join us June 30th at the US Consulate!

We call upon the Canadian government to demand that the U.S. end child detention and family separation, to reunite the families that have been separated, and for Canada to end the Safe Third Country Agreement, which makes it extremely difficult for refugees from the United States to cross over to Canada through land border crossings.

We also will be acknowledging Canada’s role in separating families, through the history of residential schools, the 60s Scoop, and the continued practice of removing children from Indigenous families and placing them into foster care. In addition, we must examine our country’s own treatment of refugee children.

Nuestra voz de protesta es contra la criminalizacion del migrante, las familias migrantes deben estar juntas en libertad, nos ha conmovido lo que hemos visto en los medios de comunicacion sobre la separacion de niñxs de familias migrantes en Estados Unidos. A pesar de no ser algo nuevo la politica de cero tolerancia a alcanzado niveles criticos. Aca en Canada en encarcelamiento migratorio de niñxs y adultos tambien no es nada nuevo. Mas de 45000 detenciones en 6 años. Hay nuevos planes de abrir mas carceles migratorias y convertir shelters en centros de detencion.
Nuestra voz de protesta no tiene fronteras.
