<nettime> Linking Struggles Against The Border: No Border Encuentro Aug 27-28

I wasn't sure if I should send this here, but since there were previous
No Border Camp posts on this list years back and since Ricardo, Emily
and Shannon are presenting, it seems relevant...

Linking Struggles Against The Border:
No Border Encuentro Aug 27-28 San Diego, CA


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 (no)border encuentro in San
Diego. 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.

Complete call to action here...

Update: Read our September mobilization call to action here...

Volunteers are still needed for: translation, child care, registration,
food and outreach. If you can help, email

Schedule of Events

Saturday, August 27th

10:00 am - Maquiladora/Border Tour - RSVP required, email us at info at
organiccollective dot org

7:00 pm - Benefit concert  {AT}  Voz Alta, 1544 Broadway

Presentation By: Roy San Filipo, formerly of the Love and Rage
Revolutionary Anarchist Federation and currently of Bring the Ruckus
will be giving a talk on reflections on anti-racist organizing.

Performing live:
Entartete Kunst - Malatesta (DJ Slo-Mo) - 187 (Raw Knowledge) - Drowning
Dog - a class-conscious worker-owned collective that produce and
distribute hip-hop, various electronic stylings and radical literature
that promotes positive social change. We have performed in the following
countries over the past 18 months; England, Italy, Spain, Germany,
Belgium, Scotland and the U.S.A. With "potent anti status quo hip hop
mixes" and spoken word, we spread ideas that promote the self
emancipation of the working class.

Boomerang Politick - A break-beat signature scripted with the resonance
of Drum & Bass, the ?boom-bap? of Classic Breaks, the Diasporatic
rhythms of Afro-Haitian-Racine and the visceral energy of Punk. LA?s Hip
Hop group Boomerang Politick brings an imminent and vital revolution to
a genre all but unrecognizable to the Beat-Street poets who originally
paved the way for their conception. They denounce the unabashed
hypocrisy of Bourgeois Elitism, the politics of war economies,
neo-colonization, globalization, white supremacy and privilege, in a
violent rebuttal, expressed in such a way entirely unique to their
music, to their interpretation of Hip Hop.

Dias Tristes - Live Tijuana Punk
