UPDATE: UofT Student and his Family Deported! Fight for Don't Ask Don't Tell and Sanctuary Schools Continues

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 2008

Toronto- Below the stormy skies of U of T's St.George Campus, hundreds of students, campus workers and faculty rallied outside the Sidney Smith Building to demand a stop to the deportation of Saad Alam and his family.

"I never imagined that I would get this much support from so many people," expressed the 23 year old U of T student, to a crowd of cheering supporters.

Slated for deportation in less than a week, the Alam family and supporters kicked of an emergency campaign demanding the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration use her discretionary authority to grant them a Ministerial Permit to allow them to stay in Canada.

Resistance Flags Raised at CBC Headquarters

Posted in

On August 25 2008, following the closing ceremonies of the Beijing Olympics, dozens of people converged at CBC Headquarters in Toronto to publicly declare resistance to the Vancouver Winter Olympics in 2010.

Organized by No One Is Illegal-Toronto but including a diverse network of groups and individuals, we collectively raised the anti-Olympic flag at the Opening Ceremonies of the resistance against the Vancouver Olympics, the G8 meetings, and the Security and Prosperity Partnership conventions, all occurring in Canada in 2010.

Highlighting indigenous attempts to defend lands and right to self-determination; of non-status people in calling for an end to their exploitation as disposable commodities; and of oppressed communities demanding a say in the political systems that govern them, activists demanded No Olympics on Stolen Native Land! No to the SPP! No to the G8!
