Solidarity with Migrants’ Caravan

Statement of the Canadian Delegation in Support and Solidarity with Migrants’ Caravan

Mexico City, November 7, 2018 — Members of the International Migrants’ Alliance (IMA) met from November 5 to 7, 2018 for its 4th General Assembly. We, the Canadian delegation of IMA, made up of grassroots organizations of migrants, refugees and their allies, express our solidarity with the members of the caravan of migrant people, especially women and children who arrived in México City in the last few days. This massive exodus comes mainly from Honduras, as well as from other Central American countries.

We are deeply concerned about the dangers facing the members of this caravan, as well as all migrants in Latin America. Kidnappings, extortions, disappearances, sexual... assaults and killings have been reported, with women and children being particularly vulnerable to violence. The delegation witnessed the terrible living conditions in the refugee camp where almost 5,000 migrants were staying until Saturday 10th in the morning.

We, the signatory organizations stand together in protest to the threats made by U.S. President Donald Trump to militarize the US-Mexico border and to act with aggression toward the caravan, in total violation of international human rights standards toward asylum-seekers.
