This week William had the opportunity to speak with two people
who are doing active support work for the folks involved in what’s
being called the “migrant caravan”, a group of 7,000 or so people
primarily from Honduras fleeting violence of many kinds. Firstly
we’ll hear from Chris, who is an organizer with Enclave Caracol, a
social center which stands in solidarity with migrants in Tijuana.
This center sprang from Tijuana Food Not Bombs, and you can learn
more about them via their Facebook
page or via their wordpress
To donate to them, you can visit the Al Otro Lado donate page and mark a donation for Enclave Caracol!
In this interview, we get into how it’s been for Enclave Caracol
Snail Enclave in English) to do support in Tijuana, some of the history regarding this particular situation, how the various cop organizations in the area have been treating folks, responses by the public and the government alike, and basic ways of how to support. Let us know what youthink or if you have a perspective on this issue by writing to us! You can also write us here.
The audio quality cuts out in some portions of these interviews, so apologies in advance for that.. … . ..
To learn more about the history of what is going on right now,
specifically the recent history of Honduras which gave rise to this
present day situation, we recommend the Alliance for Global Justice’s webinair on Honduras, which was passed to us by a comrade. It is a longer listen, and brings voices together who have been paying attention to this situation for many years, some of whom are directly impacted by it.
