(en) Proposal for Global Day of Action & No Border Camps

Date Thu, 11 Jan 2007 10:15:06 +0200

This proposal was read at the Encuentro with the Zapatista Communities and the People of the World in Oventic on January 2nd 2007 in the plenary session for the Intergalatic Encuentro as a proposal for a theme to the Intergalactic and a Global Call to Action.
To: The zapatista compañer@s, EZLN, the Sexta Commission, the adheirants of the OtherCampaign, Civil Society National and International, the people of the world.
From: Participants in the network realizing No Border Camps in fall of 2007 present at the Encuentro de los Pueblos Zapatistas con los Pueblos del mundo
We are currently a group of migrants and anarchist collectives from Mexico: Tijuana, Ensenada, Mexicali, Ciudad Juarez, D.F., Oaxaca, Chiapas and different collectives in the United States: San Diego, New York City, Tuscon, San Francisco, Santa Cruz, Portland, Raleigh and the Monterey Bay Area who are in unconditional solidarity with the indigenous, the migrant people of the world and the anarchist collectives in Mexico.

Many of us collectively and individually are adherents to The Other
Campaign. We are anarchists, students, teachers, workers, artists,
indigenous, media makers, queers, mothers, women, men and others.

Together we are working to create a world without borders. We believe
that borders are prisons and that all people in prison for crossing
“illegally” are political prisoners. Tear down the prison walls! As long
as they are in prison, none of us are free...

We are conscious that the border of the U.S. does not begin in northern
Mexico, it begins in the Panama Canal, creating borders and promoting
divisions of gender, ideology, racism, xenophobia, nationalism and class.

In this effort we are organizing No Border Camps for 4-5 days in the
fall 2007 in the border region in Calexico and Mexicali and also actions
against the border between Mexico and Guatemala. We are making a
international call to Tear Down the Wall! We know that this is not the
first wall and will not be the last.

We make a call to the international community to have a global day of
action against immigration detention centers, borders and migration
controls in the fall of 2007.

This action includes the creation of a space, a network and a process
for continued autonomous practice without borders. This autonomy has two

Autonomous actions against borders and their manifestations
Development and practice of autonomous ways of living sustainably and justly

The groups working on the No Border Camps are working within the PGA
Hallmarks (www.agp.org). The Hallmarks are:

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 beings.

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 organizational philosophy based on decentralization and autonomy.

We are in solidarity and will support the camp of The Other Campaign in
February 2007 through mid May.

This proposal is being presented to you today requesting support from
the EZLN and The Other Campaign. We respectfully ask for a public
statement of support for this call to action.

This proposal does not represent all of the collectives working on the
No Border Camp, it represents participants in the network working on the
No Border Camp present at the Encuentro de los Pueblos Zapatistas con
los Pueblos del Mundo.
