Stop the refugee legal aid cuts!

RALLY AT NOON. MONDAY FEBURARY 2, 2004 . 345 Robson Street

No One is Illegal-Vancouver is launching a campaign to oppose the imminent legal aid cuts by the provincial government. Out of the $83 million that the provincial government is cutting in social services, 40% is to come by eliminating legal services for m arginalized communities, including immigrant and refugees. As of Feb 28, 2004, provincial funding for immigrant/refugee cases will be $0. It is no coincidence that the government has eliminated funding while at the same time heightening the war at home against immigrants and refugees in the forms of increasing deportations, detentions, use of security certificates and racial profiling.
