Let Them Stay week Tuesday: express your outrage.
Resister Chris Teske ordered deported today.
With a sopping wet heart, I regret to inform you all that last night, Chris Teske (from BC) was unable to get a stay of his deportation order through the Federal Court.
This means he has been ordered to leave the country TODAY or be forcibly removed by our immigration government.
So what am I asking you to do, dear friends. Get angry. And see your anger as a gift to Chris and the other war resisters who are in the precarious position of deportation themselves.
Teske was the first of five Federal Court decisions the war resister campaign is expecting from now until the end of the month.
January 22 - Cliff Cornell
January 27 -Kimberly Rivera, her husband Mario and three children
January 29 - Patrick Hart, his wife Jill and their son
January 30 - Dean Walcott
So please, act upon your anger and outrage as a positive force for change. Please write our MPS and send letters to the editors of your local paper.
The time to act is now. Please.
I will keep you all updated as news rolls through.
With a sad sad heart,
