OCAI - Organizing Committee Against Islamophobia says
This is a day of action in support of our diverse community.

We stand together as IBPOC (Indigenous, Black, People of Colour), Muslims, Jews, Christians, Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Atheists, workers, students, immigrants, refugees, LGBTI, and disabled folks in Toronto.

Let’s come together to reject hate, show strength in numbers, and stand in solidarity.

While we stand shoulder to shoulder with one another, right-wing hate groups try to disrupt these demonstrations. For them, “freedom of speech” is a cover to spread racism, white supremacy, and Islamophobia.

Our intention is positive and peaceful. Freedom of speech is not freedom to propagate hate.

Come out on June 3rd to have your voice heard.

We acknowledge that this event takes place on the traditional and current Indigenous territories of the Anishinabek Nations, the Haudonsaunee Confederacy, Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nations, the Huron-Wendat and the Petun First Nations, among others. We recognize settler colonialism is the root of ongoing systemic oppression of Indigenous people and is a foundation for the systemic discrimination against Indigenous, Black, Brown, and LGBTTQ2SI people throughout Turtle Island. We act on this land in solidarity with Indigenous struggles for equity, justice, peace and the preservation and protection of our natural environment.
