Queer Discussions on Im/migration and Criminalization featuring NOII, QUAIA, and HAVOQ

3 Oct

On Wednesday September 28th  at Beit Zatoun in Toronto, Ontario folks discussed recent struggles by Queer and Trans folks in Toronto and in San Fransisco.  The panel featured Craig Fortier from No One is Illegal – Toronto and Natalie Kouri-Towe from Queers against Israeli Apartheid.

They were joined by Li Morales, Molly Goldberg and Essex Lourdes from HAVOQ (Horizontally Aligned Very Organized Queers) who have been on tour launching their zine Undoing Borders: A Queer Manifesto reflecting on two years of collective organizing around migrant justice.

They spoke about recent victories like the community mobilization to stop the deportation of Alvaro Orozco and about the challenges of organizing against borders on occupied land.

Listen to the whole panel here:
