The opening night of BEYOND BORDERS is this Thursday at @batterseaartscentre! In collaboration with @_migrationcollective_, we will be screening ‘Eldorado’, a powerful documentary which follows the journeys refugees take across the Mediterranean and the realities of life when they arrive in Europe. Before the film starts, we've got @mos_eggs, bringing their brilliant Syrian pop-up, plus the chance to see our Beyond Borders art exhibition. Post-film, we are hosting a panel of activists, academics and artists discussing migration, borders and how Brexit came to be. Proceeds from the night will be donated to refugee and migrant support projects, so make sure to grab a ticket and come down - ticket link in our bio💕 #refugeeswelcome #migrantswelcome #documentary #filmlondon #londonisopen #buildbridgesnotwalls #popup #streetfood #batterseaartscentre #southlondon #activism #nohumanisillegal #campaign #thepeoplesfilmclub at Battersea Arts Centre - BAC

Al "CARA" di Bari, Centro di Accoglienza per Richiedenti Asilo, una giovane donna compariva nei soggiorni degli alloggi a ora di cena. Si sedeva al tavolo con gli altri migranti sbigottiti. Nessuno trovava il coraggio di dirle che era morta. Quando si rialzava, la sedia sulla quale si era seduta era bagnata di acqua di mare. Ph.

Just watched The Story of Skinhead with Don Letts docu.⁣ ⁣ Important enlightening viewing for a proper understanding of how this subculture is wrongly associated with racism and violence (by media and cos of racists who appropriated a version of “the look”). ⁣ ⁣ AND⁣ ⁣ that it actually has its roots in a fascinating (and harmonious) meeting of white working class London/Britain and Caribbean music, clothes and culture. ⁣ ⁣ Everyone must see. ⁣Wish I’d seen it sooner. ⁣ P.S. It’s on YouTube.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #skinheads#punk #reggae #immigrant #thegoodimmigrant #immigration #migration #music #beats #ska #reggaemusic #bbcfourdocumentary #donletts#musicaldocumentary #bbcfour #musichistory#racism #fuckracism#migrantswelcome at London, United Kingdom

Mon défi de la semaine : je lutte contre les préjugés sur les migrants 👍🏽👍🏻👍🏿 Les préjugés sur les migrants sont nombreux : ils nous envahissent, ils profitent des aides sociales, ils volent nos emplois, ils sont pauvres et analphabètes…😤 Quand on prend la peine de s’informer, on constate que ces affirmations sont fausses. 🙄 Vous en doutez ?

Our tour will start tomorrow at Queen’s University (International Study Centre) at Herstmonceux Castle in East Sussex. ⠀ We will play at a #political #philosophy conference and will take part at round table. ⠀ This is the theme and description: "Culture, Identity, and Self' and the focus is on the nature of bodies, human bodies and political/cultural bodies. ⠀ Cultural and societal identities are regularly defined by our bodies, our physical look and nature. In this course, we look at the role of bodies, their function and appearance, in relation to inclusion and exclusion in culture and society. This will include questions about personal autonomy; community, society and citizenship; and what we owe ourselves, and what we owe each other." #intersectionality #intersectionalfeminism #politicalmusic #feminism #queermusic #electronicmusic #hurdygurdy #feministmusic #feministmusicians #migrantmusic #migrantmusicians #industrialmusic #postindustrialmusic #electropostpunk #dronemusic #psychodelicmusic #electrorock #experimentalmusic #migrantswelcome #refugeeswelcome #colonialism #imperialism #identity #queer #anticolonialism #antimperialism #womensrights #politicalphilosophy at Herstmonceux Castle

Absolutely shocked and upset about the shootings in Christchurch, NZ. I don’t care where you are from, what religion you follow, what political affiliations you have, but if you are a goddamned extremist , you don’t deserve a place in society . The combination of extremist ideology , warped understanding of reality and weaponry is a combination that no one in the peaceful international community can accept . #fuckextremists #unitedagainsthate #unityindiversity #nz #fightextremism #cantwealljustgetalong #migrantswelcome #coexist at Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

Is there really light at the end of the tunnel? I’m feeling somber and shocked at the tragedy in Christchurch. I am finding it hard to read the news coverage of the event, where we are not hearing any Muslim voices. I am also tired of the narrative that these tragedies happen because immigrants do not integrate with the local community, and stand out because of their appearance and beliefs. I am feeling rebellious, upset and sad. I am so tired of the good immigrant trope that it is the responsibility of the immigrant community to try and fit in, to be like everyone else or be targeted by racists, those who cannot bear any sign of difference, those who are threatened by these differences. The idea that someone’s culture, religion, customs must change to fit around others, and even when it does, there is always the fear of being discriminated, or worse killed, for being different. We have to stop finding excuses, blaming immigration policies and the community that has been targeted for this. It is simply and purely terrorism and has to be recognised as such. I am so sorry. Could we not all just get along? View differences as something not to fear, but celebrate. Because our triumph truly lies in our diversity. . . . // #socialactivist #diversityandinclusion #migrantswelcome #equality #equalityforall #rajasthan #indialove #lightattheendofthetunnel #travelgram #refugeeswelcome #femaleentrepreneur #womenofindia #pragyaagarwal #the50percentproject #nodiscrimination #momentsofmine #westandtogether #diversityconsultant #unconsciousbias #nodiscrimination #believeinpeace #christchurch #wise100 #keynotespeaker #mumlife #writersofig #whpfightsupremacy #antiracism at Amer Fort Jaipur

Here is #KajiDouša, at last year's #Pride march. Our #government has flagged her #passport for engaging in completely legal #humanitarian work at the #border, in #Tijuana. She was unreasonably detained by #borderpatrol subjected to interrogation, and had her ability to travel back and forth to Mexico hampered. Does she look like a cross-border terrorist to you? Read about it in the #gothamist link (below) and elsewhere. This country is not supposed to be a police state, even if our history with programs from #COINTELPRO to #dronewars signal otherwise. Seek ways to get involved, if you have the capacity, and get active. #Complacency is #complicity. Even the smallest acts of moral #solidarity matter. #NewSanctuaryCoalition #SanctuaryCaravan #ParkAvenueChristianChurch @judsonchurchnyc #pride2018 #usmexicoborder #kristjennielsen @secnielsen #ice #abolishice #reportage #fujigfx50s http://gothamist.com/2019/03/14/nyc_pastor_cbp_watch_list.php #activism #seekingasylumisnotacrime #migrantswelcome #refugeeswelcome #refugees #gothamist #ins at New York, New York

TRAS LA ALAMBRADA Gritos que amanecen tras la alambrada una marea de gente asustada Súplicas entre cuchillas, que desgarran vidas y a la humanidad. Años esperando para dar el salto ahora ya no hay vuelta atrás. Fonambulistas retando al destino, golpes caen de un cielo negro, asesino. Siervos que apalean sombras que se esconden sin mirar atrás Fronteras del hambre Fronteras de muerte ahora ya no hay vuelta atrás . . . . . . . . . . . #INVISIBLES #fronteras #caminandofronteras #topmanta_bcn #musica #DDHH #ateneu9barris #love #migrantswelcome #refugiats #4f4

Rencontre à la faculté d'économie à l'initiative de l'association Réflexions partagées et du Collectif Migrants Bienvenue 34. Toute la problématique de l'accueil des réfugiés, des lois Dublin, en présence de Michel-Yves Billotte, de l'association AvecToits, Jean-Pierre Baudon et d'une ancienne assistante sociale qui a intégré ce collectif. Les besoins sont immenses, si vous avez un peu de votre temps à donner, n'hésitez pas à vous joindre à ce collectif. Il est clair que l'accueil de la France n'est plus digne de ce pays à l'origine de la déclaration des droits de l'homme. Les exilés méritent mieux, des mineurs sont à la rue et l'état ne remplit plus ses missions. Je m'interroge sur le nombre de CRA (centre de rétention administratif) en France et sur les conditions de vie à l'intérieur. Notre démocratie mérite mieux et je ne voudrais pas voir dans 80 ans, un Mémorial à Sète (le seul CRA que je connaisse dans l'Hérault) avec la longue liste de toutes ces personnes qui ont été incarcérées par notre manque d'indignation générale. Indignez-vous et mettons en oeuvre une vraie solidarité et résistance pour accueillir dans de bonnes conditions tous les réfugiés.

The other day I was cycling through the Vondelpark and saw a ring-necked parrakeet happily bathing in the middle of one of these tiny rivers. He had just made it to the edge after his bath when a pair of Egyptian geese swam over threateningly, honking as if to say, ‘and stay out’. Fortunately the rather bedraggled parrakeet (just visible in front of the goose on the right) had a brave friend who held them off long enough for the bather to scramble up the bank. Perhaps the geese agree with those who want the parakeets gone, calling them a destructive ‘alien species’. (Although the geese, as their name indicates, are not exactly native themselves.) I’ve always liked the parrakeets. I’m alien here too, and stick out at least as much as a tropical bird in a wintry Northern European park. #drama #animaldrama #greenparrot #parrot #parrakeet #amsterdam #amsterdamparrots #egyptiangoose #urbanbirds #alien #immigrant #migrantswelcome #migrants #migrant #belonging #expatlife #wildamsterdam at Amsterdam, Netherlands

A staggering 68.5 million men, women and children worldwide were forcibly displaced in 2017 due to persecution, conflict, violence or human rights violations alone. That's an average of one person displaced every two seconds, UNHCR ‘Global Trends’ Report found. 52 per cent of refugees are children.

Last summer I spent lots of time at the migrants shelter in Briançon. I painted doodles on some of them as a gift and to help them feel special as they need so much validation after being treated inhumanly in the countries they traversed including horror in Lybia, abuses in Italy, being chased across mountainous borders by brutal customs officers, etc. They all wanted Lions, so I painted Lions. #bodypaint #migrants #migrantswelcome #briancon #shelter #lion #bodydoodles #wolfebodypaint #kryolan #mehronparadise #helpmigrants #europemigrantcrisis #fraternite #thisthingidowithpeopleandpaint at Briançon-Hautes alpes

"Urban biodiversity arks"= introducing endangered non-native species into wildlife-less urban areas. 👉Proposed by UCLA's Brad Shaffer, the idea is that since large cities typically have very low biodiversity, bringing in endangered exotics might not destabilize any existing ecosystem. (🤔 but what if the new exotics escape the city and invade adjacent ecosystems..?) Anyway, a radical idea for a radically unnatural landscape: the modern megacity. 👉Image @ingridtaylar from the #anthropocenemagazine article titled "To help endangered animals, move them into cities". 🏗️🦜🏢 🏗️🦜🏢 🏗️🦜🏢 #urbanbiodiversity #concretejungle #urbanwildlife #nonnative #urbanecology #biodiversity #urbanparrot #exoticspecies #invasivespecies #ecologiaurbana #noahsark #arcadenoe #endangeredspecies #especiesinvasoras #newcomers #recienllegados #newbirdsontheblock #colorfulbirds #urbanismo #cityplanning #greencities #stoplight #semaforo #asfalto #changingcities #migrantswelcome #inmigrantes #migrantes at San Francisco, California
