FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

NONE IS TOO MANY: Canada is failing to protect refugees

Toronto - July 16, 2009: Concerned community groups will hold a Press Conference on Thursday July 16, 2009 at 11:30 a.m. at Roma Community Centre at CultureLink, 2340 Dundas West (Crossways Mall), Suite 301, Toronto (follow Culturelink sign on main floor, go to 3rd Floor)

Community groups are deeply concerned about Canada’s recent decision to impose a visa on those countries, effectively shutting the door on Czech Roma and Mexican refugee who seek protection in Canada.

“Immigration Minister Jason Kenny appears to think that Roma don’t face state-sanctioned persecution in the Czech Republic” said Roma Community Centre Vice President Bill Bila. “Yet Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch have stated publicly that the Czech Republic has failed to protect Roma from discrimination and abuse at the hands of public officials and private individuals” he said.

War, Occupation and Economic starvation push people out of their homes,
forcing them to migrate.

This, we oppose.

We demand an immediate end to these policies in Canada, in Haiti, in Afghanistan, in Iraq
and in Palestine.

Homophobia, Transphobia, Racism and Sexism are the ideologies of imperialism and oppression.

The Canadian Immigration system denies protection to queer migrants erasing our struggles and exploiting us as commodities.

Immigration enforcement still operates to exclude queers and targets the LGBTTIQQ2S community every day.

This, we oppose.

Toronto ignores queer newcomers without full status pushing us away from our communities of support.

This, we oppose.
