Sick of the System: #StatusforAll

After covering production costs, Between the Lines is donating all proceeds of our ebook essay collection, "Sick of the System: Why the COVID-19 recovery must be revolutionary", to the Migrant Rights Network.

The Migrants Rights Network is a cross-Canada alliance to combat racism and fight for migrant justice. They are a network of self-organized groups of refugees, migrants, and allies.

Without access to emergency income supports, migrants and undocumented people have been working through the crisis without basic labour rights or health and safety protections. The pandemic is exacerbating the existing inequalities and racist structures that affect migrant workers; just over the last number of weeks, there has been a growing number of COVID-19 cases amongst migrant farmworkers in Ontario, three of whom have died. The COVID-19 pandemic has proven that migrants are essential to our communities, but are exploited and excluded.

That is why we are proud to support the Migrant Rights Network’s call for full immigration status for all.
