Since the outbreak of the war as Transnational Migrants Coordination we have demanded open borders for anyone seeking safety and freedom of movement and for all those who refuse to enlist in this bloody war. Instead, racist differences and hierarchies were immediately created between those fleeing the war on the basis of skin color and nationality. This journal collects articles from migrant collectives and activists from Greece, Slovenia, the Balkans and Italy that show the hierarchical and racist logics being reproduced in these countries, but also that only a common and transnational stance against the war can enable us to smash the divisions created by migration policies during the war.
This journal collects contributions from migrants and activists involved in struggles around mobility and freedom of movement in different regions and countries that are integrated in the European border regime. The texts describe and discuss the situation in Greece and the Aegean, the Turkey-EU relations, the role of wars in displacing Kurdish people, struggles and violence along the Balkan Route, the dynamics and protagonists of the newly formed Belarusian route, anti-immigrant policies and forms of struggle in Spain, the conditions of migrant labor and asylum seekers’ struggles in Italy and the undocumented movement that for years now is organising in France.
This Journal is the first public outcome of the Transnational Migrants Coordination (TMC), born
after months of struggles and communication among migrants and non-migrants’ collectives from all Europe, Morocco and Turkey, in the first attempt of transnational organization of migrants.
