Love Has No Borders

Freedom of Movement NOW

Love Has No Borders is a radical, grassroots solidarity movement with Immigrants, Refugees and those in Migration. 

Borders do not dictate peoples' right to a dignified life, they do not dictate whether a person deserves to have their humanity or their agency recognized. 

Borders are dangerous.  Borders destroy lives. 

Smash the Borders.

DETENTION BY THE NUMBERS: WHERE ARE PEOPLE DETAINED IN THE US

Freedom for Immigrants maintains the most up-to-date map of the U.S. immigration detention system. The map keeps track of the more than 200 immigrant prisons and jails in the U.S.

TRACK DEATH AND ABUSE BY BORDER PATROL

Border Patrol’s lack of accountability and oversight paired with its culture of violence has resulted in the loss of lives of both migrants and American citizens. Many more have been brutalized, in some cases causing life-altering injuries.

 #BLOCKTHEWALL

We refuse to choose between Trump's openly racist wall and the Democrats' implicitly racist "smart border" – they are merely different faces of the same death-making logic. We will block the border wall. We choose another way: freedom of movement, self-determination, solidarity and mutual aid. We can combat Trump's policies that greet migrant families with tear gas at the southwestern border, that leave Haitian people to die in boats coming to the United States and 58,000 more in legal limbo, and that criminalize entire communities. We will uplift the inspiring work by black and brown migrant support organizers like the UndocuBlack Network, Black LGBTQIA+ Migrant Project, NorCal Resist, and more, who defend migrant communities most targeted by ICE harassment, deportation and the police We will stand with indigenous communities who refuse the militarization and desecration of their homelands by Border Patrol. We will uplift indigenous resistance to the wall and to the so-called "smart border" technologies that endanger indigenous lifeways and ecosystems. We can demonstrate through solidarity and mutual aid that we can build a world without colonial borders or state violence.

ABOLISH ICE

2-abolish-ice.w710.h473.jpg

Organize

Across the land, cities have organized to subvert ICE operations through vandalism, office shutdowns, blockades, anti-raid sabotage and community communicating warnings over social media wherever ICE fleets are spotted and suspected of preparing for roundups and raids.

Resist

Across the world, airlines have refused to fly removal flights in resistance to customs and border patrol entities dragging chained asylum seekers who fled danger in their homelands only to be caged, criminalized and forced to fly back to their country of origin where they face imprisonment, torture or death.

Occupy

Occupations encampments are springing up in major cities in the "u.s." in protest of the gestapo-style national police who have separated families, imprisoned children and slaughtered people at the border.  

“We borrow the hearts of nomadic birds who don’t recognize borders.” 

59.5 million forcibly displaced worldwide.  If these 59.5 million persons were a nation, they would make up the 24th largest in the world.

Life, Interrupted

The Global Refugee Crisis, Region by Region

A look at hot spots in what the United Nations says has become the worst migration crisis since World War II.  Tens of thousands of migrants and refugees are working their way north through the Balkans.  Syria’s neighbors have been making it harder for migrants to cross into their territories.  Thousands of Bangladeshis and Rohingya, an ethnic minority from Myanmar, have fled from poverty and persecution.  The European Union wants to stop smugglers near the African coast. European governments are divided over the fates of those who reach shore.  Fighting between Ukrainian troops and pro-Russian separatists has severely damaged Ukraine’s industrial belt.

The Siege on Yemen

The US backed, Saudi led coalition's deadly blockade on Yemen, with thousands of civilian casualties in its wake, is manifesting a catastrophe of famine that will continue to devour the lives of Yemeni's trapped in global imperialist supported war and terror.  

Those not dying from starvation or cholera are dying from tragically medication-insecure hospitals that are so overrun with patients that children are being treated 2-3 per bed.  

These crimes against humanity are being supported by a US government that busily negotiates massive weapons sales across the globe while Yemeni civilians are caught in the flash spiraling pyrotechnics of violence.   

The violence of borders is continuing to end the lives of people all over the planet, including in Yemen where borders have closed for the violence-displaced.  

NO BAN NO WALL

The U.S. just shut the door on refugees

The number of refugee admissions hit 50,000, the annual cap set by the Trump administration.

The U.S. Department of State announced Wednesday that it had reached the annual cap on refugee admissions, with future arrivals facing an uphill battle to enter the country.

Supreme Court allows Trump refugee ban but backs broader exemptions for relatives

LGBTQ+ REFUGEES AT GRAVE RISK OF EXPOSURE, VIOLENCE AND DEATH AS CONDITIONS WORSEN IN LESVOS

montreal-queer-solidarity-smashes-borders.jpg
 
 

STATEMENT FROM LESVOS LGBTIQ+ REFUGEE SOLIDARITY 

As another deadly winter sets in, Moria prison camp on Lesvos is thousands over capacity and growing fuller every day. In these conditions, LGBTQI+ refugees are particularly at risk of exposure, violence and death. 

Around 3000 of the over 5500 people in the 2000-capacity former military prison at Moria are only sheltered by woefully inadequate summer tents and have to sleep on the floor on thin sleeping mats or blankets. Yet people are still arriving in their hundreds every week.

Being forced to live in such close quarters exposes LGBTQI+ refugees to sexual, physical and psychological violence. There is an absolute absence of specific support for LGBTQI+ refugees, so needs are institutionally disregarded. Some members of Lesvos LGBTQI+ Refugee Solidarity have been beaten and even hospitalised in homophobic and transphobic attacks. Some fear rape whenever they are in the camp. All have had to repress their identity, living cheek by jowl among communities which replicate the persecution they fled in the first place.
