The Trudeau Liberal government is developing a plan for COVID-19 recovery that they will announce when parliament reconvenes on September 23. Organizers are calling on everyone to join in actions on September 20 to demand the plan include a single-tier immigration system, where everyone has the same rights. All migrants, refugees and undocumented people in the country must be regularized and given full immigration status now without exception. All migrants arriving in the future must do so with full and permanent immigration status.
The ruling elite have concocted categories of people based on state-determined criteria — citizens, permanent residents, temporary workers seeking permanent status, temporary workers with no right to seek permanent status, guest foreign workers, foreign students with and without the right to seek permanent status, undocumented workers in a state of legal or civil death, and others. The division of the people into these categories allows the ruling elite to super-exploit those accorded fewer rights, a situation that is exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. This must not pass!
On September 20 take a bold stand in defence of the rights of all! Full and permanent immigration status for all! No more racism, no more exploitation, no more deaths, STATUS NOW!
