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.
