ACTION AGAINST ISLAMOPHOBIA AND HATE

 

Sisters and Brothers,

 

Federal government has declared January 29 as National Day of Remembrance of the Québec City Mosque Attack and Action against Islamophobia.

Five years ago, on January 29, 2017, the Islamic Cultural Centre of Quebec City was subjected to a horrific, hateful, and Islamophobic crime. This place of worship was attacked by a gunman who opened fire on the worshipers, killing six people and injuring many more.

 

Just last June, a man rammed a pickup truck into Muslim Pakistani Canadian pedestrians at an intersection in London, Ontario, Canada. Four people were killed, and another was wounded; all were from the same family Police reported that the attack was motivated by Islamophobia.

Toronto Local reject and denounce the destructive effects of Islamophobia, hatred, and all forms of discrimination and oppression in our communities.

Let’s all seize the moment and remember the fallen victims of hate.

 

In Solidarity
