People’s March Against Jason Kenney on Sat July 24th at 2 pm, Central Park, Burnaby; Actions also taking place in Montreal, Halifax, Toronto, Winnipeg

Wednesday July 21, 2010, Vancouver– The refugee rights and migrant justice organization No One Is Illegal is organizing a nation-wide day of protest in five cities against Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism Jason Kenney. According to Alex Mah of No One Is Illegal, “Jason Kenney is routinely called the Minister of Censorship and Deportation because of his record as one of the most repressive immigration ministers in Canadian history. But there is a growing grassroots movement across the country rising out of schools, neighbourhoods, and workplaces to reject Kenney’s oppressive and racist policies.”
