Join us for a late night rally to CELEBRATE his return and welcome him home!
late night Saturday, 28 June 2009, starting at midnight
(during the night Saturday to Sunday)
Corner Ste-Catherine and St-Hubert, downtown Montreal
Abousufian will be returning home to Montreal this Saturday around midnight after a six-year forced exile in Sudan, where he experienced torture, imprisonment without trial, and over one year trapped in the Canadian embassy. All with the involvement of Canadian officials.
Let's give him a warm welcome home. One of the few things that he indicated he would like is to greet some of his supporters upon his arrival. It's the least we can do.
While we await his arrival, there will be an opportunity to make cards, posters, banners and video messages to greet him, as well as friendly conversation and refreshments.
Bring your noise-makers, confetti, coloured flags and festive spirits to celebrate his return and this (small) victory.
