Rally to End Family Separation
Over a dozen cities across Canada are joining 600+ #FamiliesBelongTogether rallies calling for family reunification of children separated from their families, an end to immigration detention
and abolition of ICE in the United States. Rallies in Canada are also calling on Prime Minister Trudeau to condemn US policies in the strongest terms to end immigration detention and
deportation in Canada which also separates families. Open the borders to asylum seekers from the United States by revoking the Safe Third Country Agreement and the Designated Country of
Origin list, and grant permanent resident status to undocumented and migrant people in Canada. Of grave concern is state-sanctioned violence both historically and present-day on
Indigenous and Black African diasporic peoples. The practice of family separation by the Canadian government against Indigenous children through residential schools, the 60s
scoop and the Millennium scoop. The Victoria rally gets underway from 12-2pm at the B.C. Legislature Building near the Inner Habour.
