No borders, no nations, stop the deportations!
We march together to demand an end to deportations and detentions and status for all. We also denounce the double punishment of migrants with criminal records. We demand Status for All, and organize for a “Solidarity City” for all residents of Montreal.
A child-friendly march. Bring your kids!
