On September 17, 2013, 191 migrants jailed in a Lindsay maximum-security prison went on hunger strike against their endless detention without trial or charge. Over the last year, despite being locked in cages, their resistance has continued. They have boycotted their detention reviews, refused to go on lock down, and refused unjust prison orders. As a result, strike leaders have been deported, faced coercion and fines while some have been released. They continue.

On the outside, we have mobilized to support. We have beaten down the doors of immigration enforcement headquarters, we have shown corruption in the detention review process, and we have even won a case at the United Nations.

On September 17th, we gather to celebrate and to remember. We will come together as families and friends of those jailed without an end in sight. We will express our outrage at the recent racist anti-immigrant raids in Keele-Finch. We will strengthen our struggle to overthrow prisons and border controls that separate, detain and deport us. We will pledge our commitment to fighting alongside Indigenous nations asserting sovereignty. We will insist these walls must fall. AND WE WILL DANCE.
