KREYOL: Haiti Immigration - Manifestation nan peyi Canada kont Deportation Haitiens san papye nan peyi a... Lwa ki te pemet immigran refije sa yo rete nan peyi a pran fen, ni pou moun ki soti Haiti, ni pou moun ki soti Zimbabwe... Donk, fok yo tounen nan peyi yo... Kisa ou panse de sa???

This protest march is held every year to demand an end to the deportations of tens of thousands of people who are refused refugee and immigration status in Canada.

An estimated 500,000 people are believed to be living in Canada without official documentation.
