CANCELLED: Reflections on Movement and Movement-Building
May 14, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm | Virtual Event
This event has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances.
What does it mean to conjure a world without borders, a world without prisons, and a world without the carceral logics that detain and deport? How do we understand the connections and potential coalitions among struggles against policing and prisons, mobilizations against border fortification, and movements to create a more just university such as the COLA strike? This panel explores the abolitionist imperative to eradicate borders—which is fundamentally distinct from imperialist, neoliberal, and liberal humanitarian demands for borderlessness—as one that necessarily brings the prison industrial complex, immigrant detention, border fortification, and labor struggles into the same analytical frame.
