Migration, gränser och COP15

Måndagen den 14 december är No Borders Day of Action  

 

Nu samlas världens elit i Köpenhamn till ett FN-möte för att byta ett avtal mot ett annat. Det kallas ett klimatmöte – men det handlar minst lika mycket om migration, makt, pengar och klass. Det handlar om vem som får styra politiken och vem som tjänar på den eller drabbas av den. Klimatförändringarna tvingar tusentals människor att fly. När de söker skydd i de länder som främst är skyldiga till klimatförändringarna tillåts de inte stanna. Kom och protestera!

 

Vi vill bryta ner deras kontroll, avbryta deras övervakning och konfrontera deras repression. Vi kommer att öppna deras kontor för det väder som de förändrar och för de människor som de stänger ute.

 

Vi samlas kl.11 på Rådhuspladsen.

Mer om aktionen och tanken bakom (på engelska):

 

The debate over climate change and global warming management at the UN is a struggle among the national ruling establishments for their own interests on the international diplomatic stage. While there is concern that climate change can have unforeseen political and economic consequences, these competing capitalist states have no means of seriously addressing the issue, other than making preparations for cracking down on social unrest.

Elites globally have pushed the criminalization of the movement of people for years now. Their latest excuse for this is climate change. They talk about people migrating for survival and better lives as a security threat that justifies border repression and moves towards a more defined global apartheid. Their reckless pursuit of profit has caused the climate crisis, and now they want to criminalize those who are absorbing the effects of their greed.

The military industrial complex is the epitome of their hypocrisy. The
majority of wars fought in the last decades have been resource wars fought to secure government and corporations access to the planets resources.

Their exploitation of resources is the cause of the climate crisis. Now
climate change has joined their wars as the two major causes of forced
migration. At the same time, the war machine is the instrument of the
criminalization of migration.

 

In addition, “The Stockholm Program”, which is set to be passed in
december will foster more surveillance of the internet, common access to European police databases and more cross-border police collaboration to fight "illegal migration". It will force countries outside the EU to take back their citizens who enter the EU without a visa and it will push the use of biometrics and radio-frequency identification (RfiD) and enlargement of the police agency Europol and the EU border watchdog Frontex.

In the face of this, refugees act in defiance of the borders when they
move for survival and a better life. They migrate and in doing so refuse
to comply with laws that put profit and control above life and dignity.

To counter this act of defiance and hope, governments, corporations and elites foster and promoted racism globally. The COP 15 is another
instrument for this. Their definition of a 'good target' already displaces
hundreds of thousands of people. Their false solutions condemn millions more to suffering to maintain their profits.

 

It is fitting that Denmark hosts such a conference as COP15. The Danish
state actively fostered racism in order to justify the eviction and
deportation of the Iraqi's who occupied a church in Copenhagen for three months earlier this year. But like many of the other governments
participating in the COP the Danish elites are not confining their racism
to the Danish context. The recent Danish Prime Minister, Anders Fogh
Rasmussen is now the leader of NATO. He has been pushing for 'security crackdowns' and reinforcement of fortress Europe to prevent migration from places more immediately effected by elite caused climate change. To the NATO alliance an array of threats exist in today’s uncertain world, from terrorism and transnational crime to unrest following food crises, extensive migration to the countries of the NATO alliance and social conflicts as a result of climate change. On a just planet- his job would not exist. The war machine would fold and so would borders.

 

On December 14th we will take action to create this world. In the context of the COP 15 we will take on the most potent site of their sickness here in Denmark- the Ministry of Defense. We want to breakdown their control, disrupt their surveillance and confront their repression. We will open their offices to the weather they are changing and to the people they lock out. Our action starts at 11am at Israel Plads and will march to the Ministry of Defence!
