REFUGEE CAMPS NO ONE'S HOME
Constructing a Symbolic Palestinian Refugee Camp in Montreal
As part of the Campaign to Stop the Deportation of Palestinian Refugees
SATURDAY NOVEMBER 15th (12pm-5pm) Location to be Announced
The construction of this symbolic Palestinian refugee camp in Montreal
takes place within the context of the ongoing struggle of over 100
Palestinian refugees, facing deportation from Canada in the coming weeks
and months. Palestinian refugees self-organized as the Coalition Against
the Deportation of Palestinian Refugees in Montreal to fight their deportations.

The Coalition Against the Deportation of Palestinian Refugees, along with
Block the Empire Montreal, Solidarity for Palestinian Human Rights (SPHR)
and the No One is Illegal Campaign, will construct a symbolic Palestinian
refugee camp. The major focus of this action is building awarness about
the struggle of Montreal's Palestinian refugees against deportation at the
hands of Citizenship & Immigration Canada, while providing a history and
context to the global crisis of the millions of Palestinian refugees
throughout the world.

Palestinian refugees in the Occupied Territories face the killings,
extrajudicial assassinations, house demolitions, illegal arrests, trials
without evidence, torture, land confiscations and collective punishment
which defines daily life under the illegal and deadly Israeli military
occupation. Palestinian refugees in Lebanon are forbidden from owning
property, working in over 78 professions, receiving proper health care,
and moving and traveling freely. These are the conditions of life to which
Canada is deporting refugees currently living in Montreal. Both situations
will be illustrated through a variety of mediums at the symbolic refugee
camp.

The construction of this symbolic Palestinian Refugee Camp in Montreal,
takes place within the context of a growing movement of immigrant &
refugee communities who are self-organizing to confront Citizenship &
Immigration Canada's discriminatory policies and practices.

The Coalition Against the Deportation of Palestinian Refugees will also
stress the two central demands of the fight to stop the deportation of
Palestinian refugees in Montreal through the construction of this mock
refugee camp: 1) Immediately stop all deportations of Palestinian
refugees & 2) Accept Palestinian refugee claims, thus giving them the
title of Landed Status in Canada.

STOP THE DEPORTATIONS OF PALESTINIAN REFUGEES!
NO ONE IS ILLEGAL!

{Organized by the Coalition Against the Deportation of Palestinian
Refugees, Block the Empire, Solidarity for Palestinian Human Rights and
the No One is Illegal Campaign of Montreal.}
