Seeds, Stories and Status for All

Start: Saturday, March 18, 2023 2:30 PM

End: Saturday, March 18, 2023 4:00 PM

On March 18, to mark the International Day for Elimination of Racism and the return of spring we join thousands of migrants and supporters at events and rallies across Canada to demand equal rights and permanent resident status for all undocumented people, migrant workers, students, families and refugees.

Join us at the Main branch of the Greater Sudbury Public Library (74 MacKenzie St) to share seeds, stories and why it is so important that we enact Status For All. If you have seeds you wish to bring to share, you can; we all have stories, and we hope you will share yours; and together we will discuss why Status For All is needed, and needed now.

We gather because a regularization program was promised in December 2021 but Prime Minister Trudeau is stalling, and migrant families are being deported and exploited every day. Anti-immigrant forces are trying to shut down immigration justice. They are blaming immigrants for low-wages; and creating hysteria about refugee claimants escaping the United States via Roxham Road to distract from corporate greed and profiteering. We must show the federal government that there are more of us, and we all want Status For All.

We must mobilize in the thousands with hope, we must #UniteAgainstRacism, insist #RefugeesWelcome and demand #StatusForAll. We have won many victories, from access to vaccines, to stopping deportations, to winning improvements to laws. We must make sure there are no delays.

All are welcome - come join us!
