“A migrant worker who has stood up for fellow workers and become a public face of the labour rights movement is facing deportation herself, caught up in the very rules she fought successfully to change.”
Check out today’s article in the Toronto Star by Nicholas Keung on Gina Bahiwal, a prominent migrant justice activist who is facing deportation from Canada on January 15th: https://www.thestar.com/news/immigration/2017/01/12/unsung-hero-facing-deportation-under-rescinded-rule.html
Three ways to show solidarity with Gina:

Write a letter to the editor of the Star expressing your support for Gina, why you care about this issue, and why she shouldn’t be deported. Very short letters are fine!
