Picnic Against Borders and in Support of the Awan Family
Sunday, June 15
2pm to 5pm
at Jarry park (station de Castelneau or Jarry) *exact location within the park to come!
Join us for a BBQ and picnic to celebrate community resistance and affirm our support for the Awan family.
The month of June marks 10 months since Khurshid Begum Awan took sanctuary in a Montreal church. In August 2013, she made the courageous decision to defy a removal order which would have seen her returned to Pakistan, where she faces targeted violence, lack of access to appropriate medical care, and indefinite separation from her daughter and grandson, who live in Montreal.
Justice for the Awan family! Status for All!
*The event is co-organized with the Food for All committee of Solidarity Across Borders
