    A Critical Engagement with Extinction Rebellion Quebec: Interview with Mei Chiu & Alex Shiraz

    On the eve of the Climate Strike, No Borders Media speaks with two people of colour members of Extinction Rebellion Quebec: Mei Chiu and Alex Shiraz. This extended interview is a critical engagement with Extinction Rebellion, which has become known in the UK , and increasingly in Quebec, for their disruptive non-violent direct actions to raise awareness about the climate crisis.

    The first half of the interview explores the origins, actions and organizing of Extinction Rebellion, including some reflections on intergenerational organizing and activist burnout. In the second half, we examine the left-wing critiques of Extinction Rebellion more deeply, including their seeming de-emphasis of anti-capitalism and anti-colonialism, the persistent white, liberal, middle class centering of environmentalism in the West, and the problematic tactic of pure non-violence.

    Indigenous Resistance to the Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion:
    No Borders Media feature interview with Kanahus & Mayuk Manuel
    -> Listen, download and share: https://soundcloud.com/nobordersmedia/kanahusmayuk

    On this episode of No Borders Media, we speak to two Indigenous warriors on the frontlines of resistance to pipelines and resource extraction: Kanahus Manuel and Mayuk Manuel of the Tiny House Warriors and the Secwepemc Women Warriors. They have actively resisted the Trans Mountain Pipeline expansion project, which would move tar sands crude and refined oil from Alberta to the British Columbia coast.

    Just outside the injunction zone around the proposed pipeline expansion at Blue River, British Columbia, north of Kamloops, Kanahus and Mayuk speak to No Borders Media by phone and address several topics including: an update about current opposition efforts against 518 km of Trans Mountain pipeline corridor on Secwepemc territory, the impact of man camps used to construct the expansion, the use of wheeled tiny houses as a tactic of resistance, a recent symposium in celebration of the life and ideas of Arthur Manuel, ongoing criminalization of Land Defenders, the various flawed consultation processes to try to force through pipeline approval, and solidarity between Indigenous land defence struggles across Turtle Island.

    Solidarity with the Migrant Caravan from Honduras to the USA; denouncing Canadian complicity

    Solidarity with the Migrant Caravan from Honduras to the USA; denouncing Canadian complicity.
    A feature No Borders Media interview with migrant justice organizers Stacey Gomez and Yurissa Varela

    -> Listen, download and share here: https://soundcloud.com/nobordersmedia/migrantcaravansolidarity

    On this edition of No Borders Media, we explore in more detail the recent migrant caravan that courageously traveled from Honduras, through Guatemala, to the US-Mexico border. We speak with two migrant justice organizers - Stacey Gomez and Yurissa Varela - who are based in Halifax and Ottawa respectively, but also with strong links to Central America.

    Together, Stacey and Yurissa provide basic background about the caravan, including an eye-witness account from Veracruz, Mexico by Yurissa. They break down the lies and myths about the caravan perpetuated by the Trump administration, the far-right, and much of the mainstream media.

    Stacey and Yurissa describe the mutual aid between migrants, and solidarity expressed by supporters of the caravan during its journey. There is a focus on the situation of LGBTQ+ migrants, as well as the current women-led hunger strike in Tijuana by caravan participants.

    Importantly, we together breakdown Canadian state and corporate complicity in creating the displacement of Central Americans, such as the role of destructive mining companies like Goldcorp and Aura Minerals in Honduras and Guatemala. We also focus on debunking Canada's role as some sort of state that welcomes migrants, in the context of the continued imposition of the Safe Third Country Agreement with the USA, as well as the deportation of migrants who reside in Canada, such as Lucy Francineth Granados who was forcibly deported to Guatemala in April.

    This interview was recorded on December 3, 2018, by Jaggi Singh of No Borders Media. The interview ends with the track Pa'l Norte by Calle 13.

    We Will Outlive Them: For a World without Pogroms, for a Future without Fascism
    No Borders Media interview with Moishe & Sharona, on contemporary Jewish Anti-Fascism

    -> Listen, download and share here: https://soundcloud.com/nobordersmedia/outlivethem

    On this No Borders Media audio dispatch, we get insight into contemporary Jewish Anti-Fascism with two individuals involved with the recent Outlive Them call to action (info: https://outlivethem.wordpress.com/). The call for anti-racist actions, between November 8 to 11, coincided with the anniversary of Kristallnacht, the violent precursor to the horror of the Holocaust. The actions this year had particular resonance due to the Pittsburgh Synagogue Massacre in late October.

    For perspective on modern Jewish Anti-Fascism, No Borders Media spoke with Sharona and Moishe of Outlive Them. Moishe is also a member of the Muslim-Jewish Anti-Fascist Front. Together, Sharona and Moishe address the current epidemic proportions of worldwide anti-Semitism, solidarity between movements and peoples fighting oppression, Jewish histories of struggle and resistance, and militant tactics and strategies of anti-fascism.

    This interview was recorded on November 15, 2018, by Jaggi Singh for No Borders Media, and includes The Partisan Song, composed and sung in Yiddish by Emma Schaver.
