Contingents will be starting at 1pm from Verdun (métro de l’Église), Côte-des-Neiges (Kent Park), Villeray (métro Jarry) and Hochelaga (Valois & Ontario). All contingents will be converging at Phillips Square at 4pm for a migrant justice festival.
The demonstration will be demanding an end to deportations and detentions, as well as the end of the double punishment of migrants with criminal records. Demonstrators are marching together to build a Solidarity CIty in Montreal.
