42 Canadian Cities Marched In Solidarity With Muslims
"Not another life. Not another mass murder."
Toronto was one of many cities across Canada that hosted a rally against "Islamophobia and white supremacy" on Saturday.
But they didn't just come to show solidarity. Rally organizers put forward a list of demands for the Canadian government to meet.
Among them was a request to condemn President Trump and the ban, opening the Canada-USA border to refugee claimants, and rescinding legislation that unfairly targets Muslims and refugees like the Zero Tolerance for Barbaric Cultural Practices Act and Bill C51.
"We are under attack on all fronts, especially those of us who live in the intersections of Blackness and Muslimness and are Refugees who are the first to be silenced, ignored or forgotten," read a part of the letter accompanything the demands. "Not another life. Not another mass murder."
Over 150 organizations have signed on to the open letter and list of demands.
