‘A must-read manifesto for border abolition’ – gal-dem
Borders are more than geographical lines – they impact all ourÂ lives, whether it’s the inhumanity of deportations, or a rise in racistÂ attacks in the wake of the EU referendum. Border Nation shows howÂ oppressive borders must be resisted.
Laying bare the web of media myths that vilify migrants, Leah CowanÂ dives into the murky waters of corporate profiteering from borders byÂ companies like G4S, and the ramping up of everyday borders through legislation. She looks at their colonial origins, and explores how a draconian approach toÂ border crossings damages our communities.
As borders multiply, so too must resistance. From demonstrationsÂ inside detention centres to migrant-led campaigns and acts of cross-border solidarity, people are fighting back to stand up for everyone’s freedom to move.
