Vancouver Refugees Welcome! Rally Sept 6 2015

See video

This shows one of the cross Canada series of rallies demanding Prime Minister Stephen Harper answer for the deaths of Ghalib Kurdi, five, and his three-year-old brother Alan.

Speakers and singers connect the multiple causes of the humanitarian crisis, including Canadian climate policy, with moving personal accounts.

Organizers say that Canada urgently needs to welcome refugees. There are almost 60 million displaced people around the globe this year, and over 45,000 people have died crossing borders since 2000.

Events are endorsed by No One Is Illegal, Council of Canadians, Justice for Migrant Workers, Greenpeace Canada, Rising Tide North America, Ontario Coalition Against Poverty, UNIFOR Canada and others
