No One is Illegal-Vancouver is a grassroots anti-colonial immigrant/refugee rights community collective with leadership from members of migrant and/or racialized backgrounds.
As a movement for self-determination that challenges the ideology of immigration controls, we are in full confrontation with Canadian border policies; denouncing and taking action to combat racial profiling, detention and deportation, the national security apparatus, law enforcement brutality, and exploitative working conditions of migrants. We stand in solidarity with indigenous struggles against colonization across Turtle Island and also place ourselves within the broader movement for global justice struggling against capitalism, homophobia, occupation, patriarchy, poverty, war, and other systems of oppression and exploitation.
No One Is Illegal - Vancouver
Our educational work involves furthering an anti-imperialist, anti-war, and anticapitalist analysis that links the "War on Terror" abroad to the racist "Fortress North America" at home. We struggle for the right for our communities to maintain their livelihoods and resist war, occupation, and displacement, while building alliances and supporting indigenous sisters and brothers fighting theft of land and displacement. Our work is carried out through various strategies including public awareness events, direct support work with refugees and undocumented migrants, multilingual community political/legal forums, fighting back through rallies and direct actions, and ongoing campaigns and projects.
