Call for NoBorder camp in Brussels Sept/Oct 2010

In September/October 2010 people want to organize a No Border Camp in Brussels, hosting workshops, debates, (direct) actions and trainings.
On Saturday 5th December, there was a first meeting about the
organization. Next meeting is planned on the 11th January. They invite
everybody to join the organization.


- Brussels has an important role in European migration politics:
the European Parliament is based over there and Belgium will be the
chairman, starting on July 2010. With the No Border Camp, we want to
question the European Migration Policy and work towards a radical
- Brussels is the centre of decision-making in Belgium, home base
of the Parliament, of the headquarters of political parties, of the
office of foreign affairs, etc.
- And at last, Brussels has a multicultural society where big
communities of migrants and people without papers live, who have been
really active in their fight. With the No Border Camp we want to make
stronger links between the activists with and without papers.


The No Border Camp would take place in September/October and would
last for 7 days (besides 3 days to install the camp). The exact date
will be determined before January 2010, taking in account
international mobilisation, school activities and the agenda of
European politics. We would build up on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
The camp would take place from Monday until Friday, finishing with a
big demo on Saturday and the cleaning up/evaluation on Sunday.


The objective would be to decentralize the workshops/activities in the
camp, with a different theme for each day. Films, debates and
workshops will take place in different parts of Brussels, concerning
the next themes:

- Frontex and the militarisation of the borders, making society ?a
safer place?,
- Clandestinity and the struggle of refugees,
- Capitalism and migration, about exploitation and empoverisation,
- Detention centres and deportations,
- The European migration policy.
- And after the big demo on Saturday: alternatives, and what after the
No Border Camp?
