Growing violence against and exploitation of working-poor migrants in Canada

In response to these recent raids that have occurred under the public’s noses, there have been many mass public actions throughout Canada denouncing these dehumanizing attacks on racialized working-poor (im)migrant communities, including in Guelph, Ontario. Formerly known as Student Support for Migrant Workers, Fuerza/Puwersa organized a potluck dinner and panel on April 30, 2009 in Downtown Guelph. This “Status for All!” May Day Dinner event featured speakers from several different associations including Janet McLaughlin (researcher on migration and instructor at the University of Guelph), Marco Luciano (coordinator with Migrante Ontario), and Craig Fortier (organizer with No One Is Illegal-Toronto). All spoke eloquently on the plight of wtorking-poor racialized migrants in Canada.
