International Day Against Racism March

March 26- 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

To mark the International Day Against Racism, we will gather at Thornton Park on Main and Terminal, then we will march through Chinatown to Jack Poole Plaza. This where Indigenous, Black, Chinese, Japanese and South Asian people lived historically.

Let’s march against racism and all forms of bigotry, the rise of fascism, Bill C-51, Travel bans, Safe Third Country Agreement and Hate Crimes.

We acknowledge that this event, our organizing, words and beings occurs on the occupied, traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the Coast Salish peoples – specifically the sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh), and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) nations.

We also acknowledge that acts of systemic colonization against indigenous folks are currently taking place in an ongoing manner within institutions, power structures and language use. We must partake in recognizing our positions and complicity in settler colonialism on these stolen ancestral lands.

This group is made for the purpose of planning a protest as a form of action against the hateful immigrant/refugee/Muslim ban in the USA that is targeting folks who hold dual- citizenship within these countries (& hold, greencards, visas, have permanent residency within the States): Iran,Iraq,Sudan,Somalia,Syria,Yemen & Libya…. or simply are refugees from these areas.

This is targeting racialized bodies whose backs imperial & colonial states were forcibly built on.We are angered & heartbroken about this ongoing form of colonial, racist violence enacted by white supremacy & border imperialism.

Calling on Trudeau to condemn the ban and open Canada as a place for those who have nowhere to go, and to the US government to immediately put an end to this horrific policy to suspend the safe third country agreement.

We have bled enough. NO TO HATRED.

To endorse, please message us.
