    Women's March Canada - Victoria March

    Women's March Victoria acknowledges that we are gathering on the unceded territory of the Lekwungen speaking peoples. We acknowledge that the Songhees and Esquimalt nations have stewarded these lands and waters since time immemorial. We live, work, and play on Lekwungen and Saanich territories. These peoples have never stopped stewarding the land, and we all have a better quality of life due to the work they’ve done and continue to do.

    This year we will gather at the BC Legislature Building at 11am have an Indiginous acknowledgement ceremony at 11:20am and then meet the organizing team of Women's March Victoria. Together we will march to Centennial Square at 11:45am, where we will meet grassroots organizers from our communities. 

    Stay tuned for more updates before Jan. 19, 2019.

    End Family Separation

    For the sake of humanity, it’s time to act. This petition urges the Govenment of Canada speak up on behalf of your constituents in renouncing these actions and call on the UN to spare the children irreparable trauma.

    Needless and Cruel

    "The administration's policy of separating children from their families as they attempt to cross into the United States without documentation is not only needless and cruel, it threatens the mental and physical health of both the children and their caregivers," the American Psychological Association said in a statement.

    Children are being ripped from their parents and housed in tent cities or caged in an abandoned Walmart. It is not only unconstitutional but a humanitarian crisis.

    As outsiders are not permitted to address the House, petitions must be presented by Members. Therefore, petitioners must send their petition to a Member asking the Member to present it on their behalf. Women's March Canada will be requesting that an MP to be named will present this position to the House of Commons. To be certified a petition must include 500 valid signatures. For electronic petitions, an e-mail address, full name, postal code and phone number must be provided.

    What can we do outside the US?

    If in Canada and you are furious that the US is placing children in internment camps, essentially being used as political pawns, and violating both human rights and international law, here's how to take action:

    • sign this petition
    • visit our Facebook post above to:
      • learn how to contact your local MP: 
      • find what to say (many of our followers have shared what they've emailed to their local MPs); 
      • then tag your local MP in a comment on the post;
      • share and "like" the post with your friends on Facebook to spread the word.

    It takes less than 10 minutes to share your voice for these children. Please do so now.

    For the sake of humanity, it’s time to act. We, the undersigned citizens (or residents) of Canada draw attention to the House to the following that, the US Administration has directed its Homeland Security to send “100 percent of illegal southwest border crossings” to the US Justice Department to be prosecuted. When undocumented parents are criminally prosecuted, their children are automatically declared unaccompanied minors, detained and transferred into government custody—despite the fact that they have loving parents who desperately want to stay with them, parents who brought them to the United States in search of a better and safer life.

    Therefore, we call upon Parliament to renounce these actions, to call on the United Nations to demand that US immigration agencies stop the implementation of any policy that separates children and youth from their families, and that the US Administration enlist qualified social service agencies to ensure the well-being of children who are still in their custody, or have gone missing. We urge the Government of Canada to speak up on behalf of your constituents in renouncing these actions.

    We must show the world that #CanadaCares
