    This April Show Up For Migrants, This May Day Lets Fight For A World Without Borders

    The #BlockTheWall Network is calling for April to be a month of solidarity and support for migrant communities. We are also calling for disruptive actions against ICE/Border infrastructure on May 1st.

    Calling all anarchists, abolitionists, and anti-capitalists. Together we can support migrant communities, get resources for people in need, and build the political space for open borders, the abolition of ICE, and border-communities to be liberated from “open-air” prisons.

    For May 1

    Disrupt the operation of detention centers in your community. Adults are imprisoned in over 200 centers across the US. There are also over 100 “shelters” holding children captive, often in residential neighborhoods, and often unlabeled. Find a center near you and fight for its closure, hold solidarity demos outside, hold those who profit from this machine accountable. Together we can show that migrants are welcomed.

    Dismantle the arms of the system in your own community—there are many local resources that Chicanx, immigrant, Latinx and migrant communities have created. Those communities and resource outlets are lead by them and some are autonomous of the state. We ask that you find ways to get invited, allow them to organize within their communities’ capacity, and support in ways that protect their community’s organizing. Here is an article with a zine to help folks outside of migrant support communities to remember to be an accomplice.
