(en) US, Invitation: Tucson - Radical No-Border Encuentro - January

Date Fri, 08 Dec 2006 09:10:31 +0200

The BorderLine Autonomy Collective (BLAC) invites those who share our vision of a world without borders to join us in Tucson this January 12-15, 2007 as we strategize and build a movement. The January encuentro is meant to advance the development of the No Border Camp being held near the Calexico/Mexicali border in the Fall of 2007, and the North American No Border Network.
Invitation -- Around the world, international borders are used to divide people, and to define and control the conditions of our lives. The militarization of borders is key to maintaining the neo-liberal capitalist system.
As long as the U.S./Mexico border has existed, people have been struggling against it. While goods and capital move freely across this boundary many people are criminalized, persecuted and killed for doing so.
For years, around the world, people have been tearing down fences, freeing detainees and fighting for the rights of migrant people. A global movement against borders and migration controls is rising.

At the January Encuentro we will host workshops and planning meetings for
the No Border Camp, along with field trips and cultural events, throughout
the weekend. Housing will be provided, as well as some
meals. Some funding is available to help people who may have to travel
longer distances. A suggested donation of $20 per participant is

If you are interested in attending, or offering a workshop or activity,
please contact the Tucson Bunny Loving Animal Cuddlers (BLAC) at
info@blac.detritus.net - and help spread the word. There is limited space
for participants so contacting us with an RSVP is requested.

The North American No Border Network is being organized under the
hallmarks of Peoples' Global Action, pasted below:

People's Global Action Hallmarks:

1. A very clear rejection of capitalism, imperialism and feudalism; all
trade agreements, institutions and governments that promote destructive
2. We reject all forms and systems of domination and discrimination
including, but not limited to, patriarchy, racism and religious
fundamentalism of all creeds. We embrace the full dignity of all human
3. A confrontational attitude, since we do not think that lobbying can
have a major impact in such biased and undemocratic organisations, in
which transnational capital is the only real policy-maker;
4. A call to direct action and civil disobedience, support for social
movements' struggles, advocating forms of resistance which maximize
respect for life and oppressed peoples' rights, as well as the
construction of local alternatives to global capitalism;
5. An organisational philosophy based on decentralisation and autonomy.
