Le 4 septembre dernier, la police fédérale de l’Etat de Mesxico a expulsé violemment une famille de sa propriété en vue d’une expropriation menée par une entreprise privée. Marisol Mendez Trujillo dénonce le non-respect du préavis obligatoire de 20 jours et de la violence de la dépossession.

La famille Mendez a vécu au Canada pendant 5 ans, demandant l’asile politique en raison d’harcelement, de vol et d’extorsion de fonds. Apres sa demande d’asile refusée en 2013, la famille a été renvoyée au Mexique.

Les Mexicain(e)s Uni(e)s pour la Regularisation (MUR) dénoncent ainsi la complicité du gouvernement canadien dans cette affaire et réclament des réparations proportionnels aux préjudices physiques et moraux subis par la famille.

On Thursday, August 27, 2015, musicians and concert goers attend the second in a series called “Rock n’ Roma Against Deportations”, a fundraiser to support the struggle of Roma families facing deportation from Canada. Despite the rise in Neo-Nazi movements in countries like Hungary and Czech Republic that are openly targeting Roma, as well as a continuation of centuries of systemic and social violence against Roma throughout Europe, the Canadian government continues its own racist scapegoating of Roma communities, particularly refugees. Simone Lucas and Avi Gross-Grand interview Dafina Savic, Executive Director of Romanipe (link:https://romanipe.wordpress.com), an organization mobilizing around racism and discrimination the Roma face worldwide and in Canada.

L’organisation nous dit que plus de 3500 personnes sont touchées par ces déportations, rien qu’a Montréal.

Anouk Millet a pu discuter avec Romina Hernandez, porte parole de Solidarité sans Frontières et Serge Bouchereau du Comité d’Action des Personnes sans Statut, tout deux présents a la marche. Ils nous parlent plus en détails de la situation des immigrés au Canada.
