Tweet for Change this Refugee Rights Day (4 April)

 

Suggested tweets on upholding children and youth rights in Canada:

Detention is not in the best interest of refugee #children. Canada must find fair alternatives. #cdnpoli #cdnimm http://ow.ly/9W4Rl

Canada deports some #children without considering the impact on their lives. Demand that Canada always consider their best interests http://ow.ly/9W5x1

Some #children of Canadian citizens are born stateless. Demand that Canada change the Citizenship Act http://ow.ly/9W5Qt #cdnpoli

Canadian law doesn't protect trafficked #children. Demand that Canada change laws to protect them. http://ow.ly/9W5W5#humantrafficking

Canadian law doesn't protect trafficked #children. Detention isn’t a solution. http://ow.ly/9W62v #humantrafficking

 

Suggested tweets to protect refugees from Bill C-31:

Foster care, family separation and detention are not fair to #refugee children. #cdnpoli #cdnimm #noBillC31 http://bit.ly/zshz3W

Canada detains refugee #children for weeks, sometimes months. Bill C-31 will make it worse. #cdnpoli #cdnimm #noBillC31 http://bit.ly/zshz3W

Bill C-31 will separate #children from their refugee parents for at least 5 years. #cdnpoli #cdnimm #noBillC31 http://bit.ly/zshz3W

Closing doors on refugees, not smugglers means Canada is punishing the wrong people –http://ow.ly/9YMSP #cdnimm #noBillC31 #cdnpoli

Bill C-31 will jail #refugees for at least a year, against Canadian and international law. #cdnpoli #cdnimm #noBillC31 http://bit.ly/zshz3W

C-31 protects systems not #refugees. Ask your MP to defeat it. Stand for fair & affordable measures http://bit.ly/GBGiR4 #noBillC31 #cdnimm

Mandatory detention won’t stop #refugees seeking protection. Just ask Australians. http://bit.ly/GCaU6g #cdnimm #cdnpoli #noBillC31

Bill C-31 won’t stop #refugees seeking protection. Ask Australians. http://bit.ly/GENbyd #cdnimm #cdnpoli #noBillC31

Bill C-31 targets #refugees, not smugglers. Ask your MP to oppose this bill http://bit.ly/zshz3W#cdnpoli #noBillC31 #cdnimm

Mexico isn’t a safe country for Canadians http://bit.ly/wajQn, so why will Bill C-31 make it safe for #refugees? #cdnpoli #noBillC31 #cdnimm

C-31 will cost Canadian taxpayers $70,000 per detained refugee per year http://bit.ly/GENbyd #refugees #cdnpoli #noBillC31 #cdnimm

Closing doors to #refugees from Europe with Bill C-31, means excluding persecuted Roma: http://bit.ly/wutsSX #cdnpoli #noBillC31 #cdnimm
