Title

The Komagata Maru

Description

On May 23, 1914, the Komagata Maru sailed into Vancouver Harbour from Hong Kong via Mainland China and Japan. On board were 376 South Asian immigrants, all British citizens, wishing to settle in Canada. This short video explains the Supreme Court of Canada's decision to bar British subjects of South Asian descent from entering Canada - a tragic event that led to untold suffering, starvation, and senseless deaths.
