Walls Must Fall: Ending the deadly politics of border militarisation
*Webinario en inglés con interpretación al español.

COVID-19 has become another touchstone for today’s deeply entrenched politics of militarised borders and anti-migrant racism.

This webinar will look at the trajectory and globalization of border militarization and anti-migrant racism across the world, the history, ideologies and actors that have shaped it, the pillars and policies that underpin the border industrial complex, the resistance of migrants, refugees and activists, and the shifting dynamics within this pandemic. It will ask whether there are ways post-pandemic to forge a different path.

COVID-19 se ha convertido en otra piedra angular de la política de militarización de fronteras y el racismo contra los inmigrantes. Mandatarios como Trump y Orban han culpado a los extranjeros de propagar el virus y han utilizado la pandemia para justificar sus políticas racistas.
