TWO YEARS TOO MANY : Status for Kader now!

Part of an INTERNATIONAL DAY of ACTION in support of Kader

Friday, 18 January 2008
11 am
MARCH: Two Years too Many!
Gather at Phillip's square (corner of Ste-Catherine and Place Phillips)

On 1 January 2006, more then two years ago, Abelkader Belaouni, or Kader, a non-status Algerian man, took refuge in St. Gabriel's church in Montreal to avoid deportation from Canada.

Despite an outpouring of support, he has remained a prisoner in the church ever since, unable to leave for fear of being arrested and deported. That's two years too many!

Join us on 18 January 2008 to send a loud, clear message to the Canadian Immigration Minister to Act NOW to regularize the status of Abdelkader Belaouni.
