Proposals: Tacoma No Border! No Nation! Stop Deportation! Conference

We are in the process of organizing an immigration conference for the 3rd week of April in Tacoma at King's Books
Presentations and discussions will be ranging on topics such as the Northwest Detention Center, immigration, borders, deportation, and raids. If you or anyone you know can speak to these topics please contact us at: unmaskNWDC(at)gmail(dot)com

We are coming from a place of no comprise. To participate you do not have to agree to the same analysis as the organizers but, we are asking that those presenting do not encourage reform measures of any kind. This will be a space for dialog around what we have an equal enemy in: ICE, borders, deportation, raids, detention centers, etc. as well as a space that hopefully we can have a common desire for: complete destruction of detention centers, end to raids and deportation, and end to all borders from a perspective of self-organization (that does not rely on the systems of power that create the deportation machines to implement our desire of freedom of movement.)

The format thus far looks like this:

Friday April 22nd:

Benefit Show: 7PM

Location: TBA

Saturday April 23rd:

Forums, Presentations, Discussions: Noon-5PM

Location: King's Books

Sunday April 24th:
