No One Is Illegal-Montreal's Basis of Unity

The No One Is Illegal campaign of Montreal is part of a worldwide movement of resistance, struggling collectively for the self-determination of migrants and indigenous peoples.

We are in active confrontation with a colonial system built on the dispossession and genocide of indigenous peoples, as well as racist anti-immigrant laws. We maintain that there are no illegal human beings, only inhumane laws and illegal states. The very basis of labeling entire communities as "illegal aliens", "non-status" or "status Indian" aims to reinforce an apartheid system; we reject any government's right to grant such status.

No One Is Illegal asserts the clear link between capitalist globalization and the displacement of people from the global south, increasingly women, who are migrating from persecution, economic injustice, exploitation, poverty, oppression and patriarchal violence. This migration traces its roots to the same forces of colonialism and neo-colonialism that have created and perpetuated the trans-Atlantic slave trade and the forcible displacement of indigenous peoples on Turtle Island and throughout the world.

We struggle and organize for the right of peoples to maintain their livelihoods and resist displacement, as well as to migrate freely. No government can determine who is allowed to stay, and under what conditions. We denounce the criminalization of racialized and indigenous people under the rubric of "National Security", and reject reformist approaches to "improving" an immigration system that accepts colonial control and administration, and that rely on false distinctions between "good" and "bad" migrants. We affirm the right to safe passage for migrants, and work actively to build networks of solidarity and support.

No One Is Illegal in Montreal comes together in a context where the policies of the Canadian state increasingly aim to consolidate "Fortress North America" using free trade to open borders to capital, while exploiting the people whose free movement is restricted. We reject the racist "War on Terror" and its domestic manifestations in various laws, policies and agreements.

No One Is Illegal acts to expose and educate against injustice from an anti-capitalist, anti-imperialist, anti-patriarchal, anti-authoritarian and a queer positive perspective, while asserting a vision for open borders and social and economic justice. We work to combat racial profiling, detentions, deportations, police and state brutality, wage slavery and all forms of indignity. We respect a diversity of mutually reinforcing tactics, including popular education and direct action.

We organize to be part of the resistance movement within the walls of Fortress North America. We recognize that struggles for self-determination, and for the free movement of people against colonial exploitation, are led by the communities who fight on the frontlines. The No One Is Illegal campaign lends tangible support to these struggles in our capacity as both participants and allies. In doing so, we seek to contribute to building a global movement for justice and dignity, while building links between communities of resistance locally and worldwide.
