On May 1, 2013, the Sanctuary Network joined the May Day march in solidarity with refugees, together with Christian Peacemaker Teams, and Student Christian Movement.
We march for all the refugees living in sanctuary– in churches and in faith-based communities everywhere. We march for the right of refugees to stay, to live, to work, to build, to create and imagine and for their freedom of movement. We march in support of all the churches and faith-based communities who have opened their doors in solidarity with refugees. We march against Bill C-31 and the draconian refugee system which makes it increasingly difficult for refugees to get a fair hearing, and we march for all those who have been denied status, those who have been deported, and those who have died.
We march for radical faith in action to support the most vulnerable among us.
