Since 2017, the fight against deportations and for status recognition of Guinean refugees has been ongoing. Today, these efforts for recognition continue with community members resisting the working and living conditions Quebec has provided them.
On Friday, February 10th, Guinean activists and allies gathered at a Concordia University campus event to further mobilize this campaign and to shed light on the human rights concerns of deportations and immigration regulations. In this coverage, Guinean community members share their experiences. These testimonials are highlighted to raise awareness of the difficulties and the exploitation faced by migrants upon their arrival to Quebec, despite efforts to socially and culturally integrate themselves.
