On May 1, 2013, the Sanctuary Network will join the May Day march in solidarity with refugees. Together with Christian Peacemaker Teams and other friends, we will meet at 5 p.m. at the labyrinth outside the Church of the Holy Trinity, Trinity Square (just east of Bay St, north of Queen) and together we will walk to join the larger march, which leaves Nathan Philips Square shortly after 5:30 p.m.
We march for all the refugees living in sanctuary — in churches and in faith-based communities everywhere. We march for the right of refugees to stay, to live, to work, to build, to create and imagine and for their freedom of movement. We march in support of all the churches and faith-based communities who have opened their doors in solidarity with refugees. We march against Bill C-31 and the draconian refugee system which makes it increasingly difficult for refugees to get a fair hearing, and we march for all those who have been denied status, those who have been deported, and those who have died.
We march for radical faith in action to support the most vulnerable among us. Join us!
