Feature Interview: Joanna Beaton & Meghan MacRae sat down with Syed Hussan with No One is Illegal Toronto to speak about the protest actions that nearly 200 immigration detainees in Lindsay Ontario’s Central East Correctional Centre (CECC) began on Tuesday, September 18th against conditions of their detention. The detainees were recently moved from other prisons in the Greater Toronto Area, about two hours away, and have lost touch with families and legal support as a result. Conditions at Lindsay are substantially worse for them than previously. Learn more at http://endimmigrationdetention.wordpress.com and follow @nooneisillegal on Twitter for updates.
