“In solidarity with our international family, join Our Revolution Canada for lunchtime actions today and tomorrow at the US Consulate in Vancouver to oppose Donald Trump’s agenda of hate and Islamophobia,” the organizers’ call to action says.

“We oppose the US ban on people travelling from seven Muslim-majority countries. We demand the immediate release of all of those who continue to be illegally detained,” the organizers’ statement continues. “We will also mourn the lives lost during the January 29 shooting at a mosque in Quebec City. We are saddened beyond words and disturbed by the impact of Islamophobia in Canada and the US.”

The protests is being organized by Our Revolution Canada, a grassroots organization of progressive US citizens living in Canada.
