SOMETHING there is that doesn't love a wall,
That sends the frozen-ground-swell under it,
And spills the upper boulders in the sun;
And makes gaps even two can pass abreast.

This past weekend the Borderhack 2.0 was held at Las Playas de Tijuana, Mexico. A diverse group of activists from the U.S. and Mexico came together to talk about issues related to the border, media and globalization.
Activists shared stories from past mass actions and discussed what strategies would be effective in the future against organizations like the WTO. With the upcoming meeting of the WTO being held in Qutar apparently the effectiveness of mass mobilizations may become more difficult. The possibility of future meeting being held on ships or islands makes planning new types of action important. During the November meeting in Qutar there are plans to demonstrate at stock markets around the world. Other strategies of educating more people about the concerns of the global movement were also thought to be very important. Now that the mass mobilizations have focused the attention of millions of people on the issue of globalization, it is time to start discussing the subject with people in all sectors of society.
Technology was one major focus of Borderhack 2.0. How can the internet and other new technologies be used to inform more people? There were discussions on the formation of an IMC in Tijuana. Members from San Diego IMC, Los Angeles IMC and the Bay Area IMC talked about how they have organized around the idea of creating a form of media that more people can be involved with. The importance of the global Indymedia network was a point that received much attention. Everyone was very supportive of the start of a Tijuana IMC and offered to help. Outreach to existing organizations doing grassroots media was something that I noted is an important part of organizing a new IMC.
Camping and Music was also an important part of the Borderhack event. I am interested to here comments on these parts of Borderhack 2.0. This report was only created from the events on the afternoon of Saturday, August 25, 2001.
