(en) ORGANIC - call for No Border Camp 2007, Calexico/Mexicali

Date Fri, 27 Oct 2006 07:49:10 +0200

As long as the US/Mexico border has existed, people having been
struggling against it. It is a highly militarized, violent boundary
marking an internal space of strict migration controls while allowing
for unrestricted movement of capital and wealth. This border exists in a
global context of apartheid borders and restriction of movement. 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. One of many
tactics in this movement is the no border camp - a space for direct
action and building community. Join us for a transnational no border
camp on the Mexico/US border.

We are currently an informal network of groups and individuals on both
sides of the border. We are planning a transnational no border action
camp for the fall of 2007, in the region of Calexico and Mexicali. The
PGA hallmarks are the basic points of unity for the mobilization.

The camp is intended to be a spectacular intervention in a discourse
that at times ignores, and at other times justifies, the systematic
violence, indignity and exploitation experienced by migrants in this
country. The mobilization will bring many of us together in one place to
share and learn. It is of equal importance to us that this not be just
one isolated event that lasts a few days in one specific location. We
view this mobilization as a process. It is a process of creating an
anti-capitalist network for freedom of movement. For this mobilization
to be a success, groups and individuals from a diversity of locales and
experiences must make this project their own. We hope that others see
this as an opportunity to build a platform from which this struggle can
be demonstrated and articulated.

Several Regional gatherings are currently being planned. Send inquiries
to nobordercamp@gmail.com

Plans for this mobilization came out of the ongoing process of forming
the deletetheborder network and the "Roots of Resistance" camp hosted by
the organic collective in San Diego in September 2006.

Peopleâs 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.
