Special Event: National Day of Action To Oppose New Security Certicate Legislation

NATIONAL DAY OF ACTION TO OPPOSE
NEW SECURITY CERTIFICATE LEGISLATION

This October, the Canadian government is planning on introducing new
Security Certificate legislation when Parliament re-convenes in
mid-October. In February 2007, as a direct result of a grassroots campaign
led by Security Certificate detainees and their families, the Supreme
Court of Canada ruled that Security Certificates were unconstitutional.
Rather than abolishing Security Certificate legislation, the Government is
passing new legislation in an attempt to provide a veneer of legality to a
fundamentally unjust process. The Secret Trial 5 have called for our
solidarity in their ongoing struggle against racism, oppressive
immigration controls, and expanding state surveillance and control.

Join us for Leafleting, Readings, and Creative Resistance
FRIDAY OCTOBER 19TH 4:30-6:30 PM

Join us in this National Day of Action to demonstrate our continued
opposition to Security Certificates in any and all forms! Allegations that
are imprecise and rely more on racist fear are fundamentally arbitrary and
a system that applies only to non-citizens in inherently discriminatory.
Thus any cosmetic reform is incapable of altering the fundamentally flawed
nature of this regime. Abolish Security Certificates Now!

**** Also, write and call your MP to demand that they not support any new
security certificate legislation. You can find your MP’s contacts via
www.parl.gc.ca
