June 13 - Candlelight Vigil in Mississauga

Challenge Security Certificates
Candlelight Vigil

Tuesday June 13 - 7:30

Revolution Square
Hurontario & Dundas

In solidarity with The Freedom Caravan and Camp Hope, The Mississauga Coalition for Peace and Justice is holding a candlelight vigil to support the Security Certificate Hearings at the Supreme Court of Canada next week. The United Nations, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, and thousands of Canadians have called for an end to such abuses.

In light of the recent arrests based on suspicions of terrorism, we are standing up to demand due legal process, fair trials, and the abolishment of human rights abuses at the national level. These arrests perpetuate the Canadian legacy of racial profiling, and oppression towards cultural groups from the beginning of Canada’s foundation with the genocide of the First Nations.

Demands of MCPJ and Freedom Caravan:

* End Racial Profiling and imprisonment based on ethnic origin
* Free Canada's Secret Trial Detainees
* End Secret Trials in Canada
* End Deportations to Torture
* End Arbitrary Detention Without Charge
* End RCMP/CSIS Harassment of Immigrant Communities
* Create A Just, Fair System for Refugees
