An interview with Rabie Masri an organizer with the Coalition Against the Deportation of Palestinian Refugees in Montreal. Currently in Montreal, Quebec there are over 100 Palestinian refugees facing deportation in the coming days, weeks and months. Most of the refugees are from the refugee camps of Lebanon and from Occupied Palestine. They have claimed refugee status in Canada over the last couple of years. Systematically Palestinian refugee claims are being rejected by Immigration Canada post September 11th. The Palestinian refugees are currently building support & solidarity with groups, organizations and individuals in Montreal and beyond.

The Palestinian refugees in Lebanon are forbidden from owning property, working in over 78 professions, receiving proper health care, and moving and traveling freely. These are only a few of the persecutory measures and discriminatory restrictions the Palestinian refugees have to face in Lebanon. Moreover, the intensified mistreatment of Palestinian refugees inside the camps has left their lives in real and immediate peril.

Those Palestinians who have escaped the dire situation in the Occupied Territories, very little need be said as to the terror they face daily and routinely. They have fled from the killings, extrajudicial assassinations, house demolitions, illegal arrests, trials without evidence, torture, land confiscation, and constant humiliations.

Ceci est un média alternatif de publication ouverte. Le collectif CMAQ, qui gère la validation des contributions sur le Indymedia-Québec, n'endosse aucunement les propos et ne juge pas de la véracité des informations. Ce sont les commentaires des Internautes, comme vous, qui servent à évaluer la qualité de l'information. Nous avons néanmoins une Politique éditoriale , qui essentiellement demande que les contributions portent sur une question d'émancipation et ne proviennent pas de médias commerciaux.

This is an alternative media using open publishing. The CMAQ collective, who validates the posts submitted on the Indymedia-Quebec, does not endorse in any way the opinions and statements and does not judge if the information is correct or true. The quality of the information is evaluated by the comments from Internet surfers, like yourself. We nonetheless have an Editorial Policy , which essentially requires that posts be related to questions of emancipation and does not come from a commercial media.
