Organizers of Saturday’s so-called “United for Border Protection” protest have changed the location of the event from the irregular border-crossing site at Roxham Rd. to the official Lacolle border crossing.
The location change appeared Thursday in a post on the Facebook page of Storm Alliance, a splinter group of the openly anti-immigrant group Soldiers of Odin.
Solidarity Across Borders, which describes itself as a migrant justice network based in Montreal, hailed the change in location as a victory for anti-racist groups. The network claims media coverage of its planned counter-protest Saturday at Roxham Rd. spurred the change of location.
