ii) We also feature an interview with DEEPAN BUDLAKOTI, Deepan is an Ottawa-born man who the Canadian government is trying to deport to India, a country where he has no family, has never lived and is not a citizen. Info:

iii) We’ll also hear audio from a support demo for the Awan Family in front of the Immigration Canada in downtown Montreal. November 28 marked the one-hundredth day of sanctuary for KHURSHID BEGUM AWAN, a Pakistani refugee who courageously decided to defy a deportation order issued to her on August 21, 2013. Since then, she has been forced to live in a church in Montreal until her status is regularized. For info, click here
