weds july 8: vigil for war resister kim rivera

Toronto-area supporters of US war resisters in Canada, please join us this Wednesday, July 8, in front of the Federal Court on Queen Street. Lawyer Alyssa Manning will argue on behalf of Kimberly Rivera, her husband Mario and their three children, appealing the negative decision on Kim's Pre-Removal Risk Assessment.

Please come out to support the Rivera family and to demand that the Harper Government respect democracy and the will of the Canadian people. It is time to let the war resisters stay!

The minority Harper Government continues to thwart the will of Parliament by deporting US war resisters. War resisters Robin Long and Cliff Cornell are now in US military prisons because Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Citizenship and Immigration Minister Jason Kenney have refused to respect two House of Commons motions - passed June 3, 2008 and March 30, 2009 - calling on the Government to let
war resisters stay in Canada.

Stop by on your way to work, or take the morning off to support the Rivera family.

When: Wednesday, July 8, 2009, 8:00 a.m.
Where: 180 Queen St. West, west of University Ave (subway: Osgoode)
