Reportback: Kenney confronted in Vancouver again!

Posted by admin on May 25th, 2010

On May 14, 2010 an emergency protest was called by the War Resisters Campaign and No One Is Illegal to confront Immigration Minister Jason Kenney. Kenney was trying to sell his new heinous refugee reform bill as part of a hand-picked immigration roundtable. Approximately 25-30 people surrounded the two entrances to the Citizenship and Immigration Canada building for about 90 mins, trapping Kenney inside and preventing his exit from the building. A picket informed those passing by about the record of Jason Kenney. Despite a slowly increasing police and security presence, a small group of NOII members were able to block Kenney’s limousine from leaving the parking garage for a few minutes, though quickly removed by police. As this scuffle broke out around him, Kenney was visibly shaken inside his car.

This is the latest in a series of public confrontations of Minister Kenney, in Nov 2009 members of No One Is Illegal disrupted a Jason Kenney speaking event at UBC, read report here. Read more about The People v. Kenney Campaign
