 A refugee speaks out
 For non-profit use only.
Listen to an interview with Amir, an Egyptian refugee living in Montreal, and member of Solidarity Across Borders and No One is Illegal.
Produced for CKUT community radio (90.3FM) in Montreal by Aaron Lakoff
From June 18-25th, 2005, immigrants, refugees, and their supporters will be walking from Montreal to Ottawa to demand rights for non-status people living in Canada. Solidarity Across Borders, coalition of groups (many of them self-organized refugee groups) who are working around migration issues, is the group who is putting this march together.

Amir is an Egyptian refugee who has been living in Montreal for the last two years. He is an outspoken activist for the rights of non-status people, and is very involved in both the Solidarity Across Borders, and No One Is Illegal campaigns.

Here, he reflects on his life as an Arab man living in NYC during the September 11th attacks, the march to Ottawa, and his experiences with the borders of Fortress North America.
