"Migration is an expression of the human aspiration for dignity, safety and a better future. It is part of the social fabric, part of our very make-up as a human family." -- Ban Ki-Moon, Secretary General of the United Nations
Today, on December 18, 2014, Radical Action with Migrants in Agriculture (RAMA) will be joining countless groups around the world in commemorating the 14th annual International Migrants Day. Inaugurated in 2000, December 18 coincides with the United Nations' adoption of the International Convention on the Protection of the Rights of All Migrant Workers and Members of Their Families, which Canada has refused to ratify.
