Description: The first No borders camp in the western hemisphere took place in November 07 in Calexico/Mexicali on the US/Mexico border. In this workshop we'll discuss:
The necessity of an Anti-capitalist No Borders Network. We will use the no borders camp as an example of how these concepts are applied in practice, and discuss how these concepts may be useful in the many overlapping struggles against borders, for immigrant rights, against capitalism and against all oppression.Valerie C. was born and raised in the rural California/mexico borderlands.
