The ruling elite have concocted categories of people based on state-determined criteria – citizens, permanent residents, temporary workers seeking permanent status, temporary workers with no right to seek permanent status, guest foreign workers, foreign students with and without the right to seek permanent status who pay huge sums to study in Canada and have the right to work while they study, undocumented workers in a state of legal or civil death, and others. The division of the people into these categories allows the ruling elite to super-exploit those accorded fewer rights, a situation that is exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. These divisions serve to deprive the people of a consciousness of what is happening which, in turn, seeks to weaken the resistance of the working class and its ability to defend all its members.
On August 23, join with working people across the country to take a bold stand in defence of the rights of all! Full and permanent immigration status for all. No more racism, no more deaths, no more exploitation, STATUS NOW!
