On September 28th, Harper, Mulcair and Trudeau will be participating in a televised pre-election Federal Leaders debate, sharing their visions of Canada’s Foreign Policy at Roy Thomson Hall in downtown Toronto. Canada’s foreign policy has destroyed people’s homes and communities abroad and particularly displaced Indigenous, Black, and other racialized people across the Global South. Join us as hundreds of others in a rally as we insist upon a new vision, one that is about flourishing communities, not displacement and profit.
#RefugeesWelcome means:
  • we are in solidarity with the Indigenous peoples who continue to fight ongoing colonialism, displacement and defend the land across Turtle Island and the Global South.
  • we oppose the narrative of “worthy” migrants that is rooted in disablelism, patriarchy, capitalism, and the anti-Black racism that values certain bodies on the move over others.
  • we believe in the freedom to move, return, stay for all peoples.
  • we celebrate the hundreds of thousands of people breaking borders in Europe and elsewhere in their search for freedom.

Canadian ‘foreign’ policy is increasingly built on exploitative trade deals, environmentally devastating resource extraction, the war on terror, militarism and displacement. On September 28th, let’s put forward our own vision of a more accountable and just world and a more collective humanity.

Our vision: #StoptheWar #EndMiningInjustice #BoycottApartheid
#ClimateJusticeNow #NoFreeTrade and racial, gender, economic justice for all.
*We humbly acknowledge that this action is taking place on traditional territories defended by Missisaugas of the New Credit, Haudenausaunee People and the Wendat Nation*

This rally is organized by No One is Illegal – Toronto and endorsed by a number of progressive social justice organizations, including the Coalition Against Israeli Apartheid.
