Join us in San Diego - August 27-28, 2005 - for a weekend of strategizing and organizing against the border and the minutemen.

(no)Border Encuentro, August 27-28th, San Diego, CA, U.$.A.

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 o.r.g.a.n.i.c. Collective has organized a two-day (no)border encuentro, in San Diego, in the spirit of the Zapatista Encuentros. 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.

Read the rest of the call, with links, here:

New housing and rideshare forums for the Encuentro are set up, so if you need a ride or housing, or if you can offer a ride or housing, post here: housing board: rideshare board:
