No One Is Illegal-Fredericton marked Refugee Rights Day a few days later on April 8, 2021 with a panel discussion called, “Is there an ongoing erosion of refugee rights in Canada?” The panel is now available for viewing here.
Panelists included Justin Mohammed, Human Rights Law and Policy Campaigner at Amnesty International Canada, and Jeremías Tecú, a Fredericton resident and settlement worker whose life story is the subject of a new book titled, In the Arms of Inup: The extraordinary story of a Guatemalan survivor and his quest for healing from trauma, by Moncton-based writer and therapist Eve Mills Allen.
Panelists discussed Canada’s obligations to uphold refugee rights and to protect refugees in and entering Canada.
The event was moderated by Anna Sirois, a St. Thomas University fourth-year human rights student and member of No One Is Illegal-Fredericton.
