As migration becomes the "specter haunting empire", it is critical for anarchists to take part in the struggle for freedom of movement. The o.r.g.a.n.i.c. collective is a no-border anarchist collective located at San Diego and elsewhere, confronting the rising wave of hatred against immigrants embodied publicly by the Minutemen and structurally by the border itself. We will show video clips from our recent actions at the border confronting the Minutemen, and then critically reflect on it in relation to migration, white supremacy, vigilantes, the war on terror, and anarchism. We want to discuss positive and negative ways anarchists think about borders/race/migration, asking, How is the border a perpetual "state of exception" in the war on terror? What is the meaning of freedom of movement, and how is the autonomy of migration possible? How can we move toward a radical no-border movement in the United States? How is the struggle against borders criticaol to overthrowing capitalism?
