Alfredo Bonanno denied entry into Mexico

Borders

From South-American comrades we learn that A. M. Bonanno, who was due to take part in the Jornadas Informales Anárquicas, was denied entry also in Mexico as had happened in Chile. It is clear that South American states are implementing repressive strategies especially in recent times: a comrade dead (Sebastian Oversluij), continuous arrests, collaboration with European states (for example the arrest of Francisco and Monica in Barcelona along with three other comrades who were released five days later), judicial frame-ups like in the ‘Bombas’ case, the arrest of Victor Montoya and much more.

To Win Tomorrow, Undoing Border Imperialism is the Book We Need Now

Borders

Longtime migrant rights organizer Harsha Walia has given our movements a tremendous gift with the release of her new book, Undoing Border Imperialism (AK Press, 2013). Walia gives us cutting edge analysis from one of the most radical and highly effective immigrant rights movements in Canada, No One Is Illegal (NOII). With local organizations throughout the country, a decade of experience, and a growing list of impressive victories, NOII is a critically important organization for all of us in the United States to study and learn from.

Border Patrol rejects use-of-force curbs


Borders

Border Patrol agents will be allowed to continue using deadly force against rock-throwers, the chief of the agency said, despite the recommendation of a government-commissioned review to end the practice. The Police Executive Research Forum, a nonprofit group that advises law enforcement agencies, recommended that the Border Patrol and its parent agency, Customs and Border Protection, stop the use of deadly force against rock throwers and assailants in vehicles, Border Patrol Chief Mike Fisher said.

Many scuffles have broken out with the police as they have tried to dismantle makeshift barricades.

The Beast Strikes Again: Central American Migrants Feel Brunt of Failed Immigration Policies

Borders

Security is a constant buzzword heard in the latest round of debate on US immigration reform. Democratic and Republican politicians alike are making promises to US citizens that the “Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act of 2013” will focus on prioritizing their security. The promulgation of this word begs the question, security for whom?

Riots close Italy’s immigrant detention centers

BordersCIE detainees often try to break out, resist, harm themselves or go on hunger strike. Now they have succeeded in doing what organizations, politicians and activists have been unable to do: close CIEs. The fight against CIEs (illegal immigrant detention centers) has taken different forms: from the LasciateCIEntrare (“Let us in”) campaign to allow journalists to visit and write about these prisons to active support from autonomist and anarchist groups. CIE detainees often try to break out, resist, harm themselves or go on hunger strike. Now they have succeeded in doing what organizations, politicians and activists have been unable to do: close CIEs.

Bahrian Guest Workers strike!

BordersAROUND 500 workers downed their tools yesterday to call for better living conditions and increased wages following the suicide of a colleague. The labourers - from Nepal, Pakistan, India and Bangladesh - launched an indefinite strike, demanding additional vacation days and a canteen inside their Sitra accommodation. They were also outraged by the death of their Nepali colleague, who took his own life on Thursday under mysterious circumstances after only being in Bahrain for 20 days. Deu Ram Rai, 22, hanged himself at the company's labour camp. The workers believe the man was denied a sick day off, despite being "very" ill.

New York's undocumented workers join forces against mistreatment

Ataur was 18 when he left Bangladesh and arrived in the US in 1991 as an undocumented migrant. He took two jobs at the same time, earning about $35 a day. Vincent was smuggled into the US from China in 2001; his working conditions were even worse. He was employed in several Chinese restaurants, for 60-70 hours a week, six days a week, for about $300 a month, an average of $1 an hour.
