La Idea del Foro -- The Idea of the Forum

Idea:
The Border Social Forum came out of an agreement between global south & global north social movement organizations and in particular from a discussion to develop a movement to ‘Tear Down the Wall of Death’ that Bush is pushing to complete and thus seal the US-Mexico border physically. Social movements from Mexico and the south will mobilize north to Cd. Juarez and groups from the US and Canada will go south to converge in Cd. Juarez. The goal of the Border Social Forum is to create a space for the ‘integration’ of the social movements from the border bi-national region and to connect the social movements of the global north and global south.

Campaign:
The mobilizing and the campaign to ‘tear down the wall of death’ will kick-off or launch on March 21, 2006 to co-celebrate Don Benito Juarez, Indigenous president of Mexico whose slogan was “as in people and nations, peace is respect for the right of others”.

La Idea:
La idea del Foro Social fronterizo sale del acuerdo tomado entre organizaciones de movimiento social del sur global y norte global en el Foro Soccial Mundial en caracas, Venezuela 2006. El acuerdo decidio tomar accion para derrumber el ‘MURO DE LA MUERTE’ entre EEUU-Mexico. Este muro de la muerte que Bush quiere fisicamente cerrar la frontera entre Estados Unidos y Mexico. La idea del Foro social Fronterizo es crear un espacio donde puede crear una ‘integracion’ entre el movimiento social de la frontera pero mas alla a la frontera con Mexico y Centro America y frontera norte con Canada.

Su presencia, apoyo y solidaridad es necesaria para derrumbar el
‘Muro de la Muerte’
US-Mexico!!
