Join Justicia for Migrant Workers (J4MW) in visiting the office of Immigration Minister John McCallum to demand the right for migrant farmworkers to be with their families this Family Day. We will go to the Immigration Minister’s office this Friday to demand that migrant farm workers be able to receive Permanent Immigration status when they arrive to Canada. Help us ensure that not one more Family Day passes where migrant workers cannot be with their partners and kids.
We will be meeting at Minister McCallum’s constituency office (7750 Birchmount Road Unit 21-22, Markham, Ontario) at 10 am on February 12th, 2016. Rides will be departing from 720 Spadina Ave in Toronto at 9 am. If you need a ride, or you can drive people, please RSVP to at email@example.com
J4MW’s action at Minister McCallum’s office is part of the Harvesting Freedom Campaign, which marks 2016 as the 50th anniversary of the Seasonal Agricultural Workers Program (SAWP). The campaign will include actions throughout the year to call for Permanent Residence status for migrant farm workers and will culminate in a historic Pilgrimage on to the nation’s capital in October.
Hope to see you on Friday,
