(en) US, San Diego, Update, Linking Struggles Against The Border: No Border Encuentro Aug 27-28

Date Fri, 19 Aug 2005 07:42:48 +0300

Complete Schedule, with dates, times and locations below...
Hola todos. Crazy times we find ourselves in. Millions of people forced
to live underground, more than 3200 dead and tens of thousands more
incapacitated crossing the border. Communities and families split by the
wall. As if the border and its myriad forms of violence were not enough,
racist paramilitaries are openly organizing across the US and finding
enthusiastic partners in politicians and corporate press outlets alike.
And then there are the numerous Neo-nazi groups crawling out from
beneath their rocks, thrilled with the “Trojan Horse” of growing
anti-migrant sentiment.

So, here we are. There is a huge amount of incredible organizing around
these issues happening all around us. As one small contribution to this
struggle for liberation and dignity, the (no)border encuentro in San
Diego. We hope that many different people can make it and we hope for it
to truly be an encounter, with many people sharing space, dreams, ideas
and strategies.

Despite our many backgrounds and areas of focus, we hope that we can
learn and walk together, hashing out answers to questions like: How do
we strengthen current struggles? How do we create a de-colonization
movement and what would that look like? How do we construct autonomy in
the border region and what would that look like? How do we help broaden
and show solidarity with indigenous struggles like that of the
Zapatista’s and others? How do we build a sustainable movement for
freedom of movement and the right to stay with full rights? While we are
at this Encuentro, there will be No Border actions in Greece and
Bulgaria and we are in solidarity with their international call for No
Border actions.
