ALL THE WALLS
March 25-28, 2022 : Tucson, AZ / Nogales, Sonora
Explore the realities, the struggles, and the vision we must mobilize around, so that walls indeed fall!
We invite you to join us in "All The Walls Must Fall Conference" on March 25-28, 2022, to explore the realities, the struggles, and the vision we must mobilize around, so that walls indeed fall, connecting our lives and similarities despite the thousands of miles of distance.
From the US/Mexico border to the borders around Palestine - walls and militarization, dispossession of lands and cultural genocide, brutality and murder, mass detentions and lack of rights, forced migration and criminalization, environmental damage - these and other shared abuses, have all defined these experiences.
Walls expel, exclude, oppress, discriminate and exploit. Walls cause thousands of deaths every year and destroy lives on a daily basis. For many, the logic of security seeks to justify the construction of walls separating territories and states. The creation of borders often conceals racist logics and is based on the idea of the external enemy in order to place a stigma of otherness on people and not recognize them as people with rights.
When both the US/Mexico border and the Palestinian struggles are the most maligned and misunderstood, it is our place from the Arizona/Sonora region to join in the efforts to expose the truth, the deep connections between our "separate" struggles, and the costs these lies perpetuated by both media and government have on our lives.
We cannot wait to dismantle the systems that create these walls; our own shared lives depend on what we do in dealing with the deadly militarization gripping the entire US/Mexico region, and the devastating attacks on the political, economic and cultural autonomy of the Palestinian people.
We invite you to reflect on how we can confront the border walls. It is necessary to make visible, now more than ever, through concrete actions, these walls that systematically violate human rights and to create solidarity among the people affected through the construction of collective resistance.
