Our friends over in Austria – KRITNET – have been hard at work putting together their forthcoming conference Migration, Criminalisation, Resistance, Invention – which will take place later this month in Vienna.
In their own words…
“While politics of fortification and racist mobilisation grow stronger every day, there are also multiple forms of resistance and invention that have emerged – not only since last summer – managing to fight, resist and elude racism in its various guises, violence, oppression, borders and exploitation.
There are rather few opportunities for those resisting these developments to meet, to get to know each other, to talk and think together. Trying to fill this gap, this conference aims at enabling participants to exchange experiences, join their struggles, form new strategies and spaces of resistance, and alliances fighting these recent racist intensifications.
We believe that in times that are marked by increasing state and civil racist violence, knowing each other, thinking together and forming common strategies can be key to gain strength, and to open spaces for reacting, resisting and inventing alternative worlds and realities to those we are currently confronted with.”
Needless to say, if you’re based in Austria, you cannot miss this!!
