Central East Correctional Centre, Kawartha Lakes, Ontario
September 20, 2013

About 200 immigrant detainees stage a protest and hunger strike in response to a recent mass transfer and the prison conditions that denied them access to their legal counsel, family visitation, and recreational programming. Due to the lack off resolution, a few of the hunger strikers resume their hunger strike.

Outside supporters organize a solidarity protest at a politician’s office.
