Tadamon invites you to meet Omar Ben Ali at Café Du Pain et Des Roses, a Villeray Café, on February 21th. Omar is from Palestine and lives in Villeray. He arrived in Canada almost 10 years ago but has since then lived in a state of legal limbo.

The Canadian government have not granted him status and yet cannot deport him to Palestine because Canada does not recognize Palestine as a state. Omar has been working to build support for his campaign (#StatusForOmar) to regularize his status and to reunite with his family, from whom he has been separated for nearly a decade.

We would like you to meet Omar in person, to get to know him, hear his story and to support him in his appeal for status, justice and dignity. Perhaps some of you know of his case, but we are hoping that meeting with Omar in person would help build solidarity with him and momentum towards his struggle. Villeray for Omar!
