Feature Interview: Christian Deo connects with Mina Ramos from Guelph Prison Radio about the protest actions that nearly 200 migrant workers in Lindsay Ontario’s Central East Correctional Centre began on Tuesday, September 18th against conditions of their detention. Some of the workers have been held for over 7 years on minor charges. Christian also speaks to Latoya Lettman, one of the relatives of the striking detainees. 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. Learn more at http://endimmigrationdetention.wordpress.com
