On Saturday, July 7, at 9 pm CET, a video live stream will be
broadcasted through the net. Video, text, sound and data streams coming
from Campsfield, Krynki, Lendava and Tarifa and other places will be
picked up and mixed up to single live video stream. It's an experiment,
meant to disseminate the common goals and the diversity of each camp,
their local contexts and the specific histories of each border, but also
to express the motivation of the different projects and to broadcast the
live atmosphere at the campsites. 

"Freedom of movement" is the main objective of six bordercamps in summer
2001. Year by year the barbarism of the migration regimes causes
thousands of deaths along the borders between east and west, north and
south. As it is getting easier for the fluxes of money, goods and
capital to roam around the globe, crossing a border is becoming more and
more difficult for most people. 

Borders are there to be crossed. People have the right to decide for
themselves where they want to live and how. We don't need a
globalisation designed for corporations and their hunger for more and
ever cheaper labour, no matter if legal or illegal. 

So we are going to the borders of Europe and the US, we are gathering to
bring forward a real international from the bottom, which meets the
needs of people to communicate, exchange experiences and cooperate.

Each of the six camps is a site for political, cultural and media
activities, they are creating a space to gather and meet, discuss,  make
actions and create connections. Camps are happening in:

TARIFA (es) july 2-8

LENDAVA (si) july 4-8 

KRYNKI (pl) july 5-12

GENOVA (it) july 21-24

FRANKFURT (de) july 28-aug 5

TIJUANA (mx) aug 24-26

The distributed bordercamp communication structure starts with the  J7
live stream on July 7 and will offer various services and opportunities:
