Border Social forum

October 13-15, 2006

CD JUAREZ, CHIHUAHUA-MEXICO

Change in Date:

Many organizations that anticipate participating in the first Border Social Forum (BSF) have petitioned us to change the dates of the Forum scheduled for May 3-5, 2006. The great majority of organizations making the change of date request are organizations involved in organizing for the May 1 General Strike and have been active in organizing the marches for migrant rights and against the racist and anti-migrant, anti worker laws proposed at the US Congress.

For these reasons, we propose to organize the first Border Social Forum on October 13-15, 2006. The Border Social Forum will be held at Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua-México. CD. Juárez is located across the border from El Paso, Texas.

Organizing Committee:

Your organization can join the Organizing Comité that got formed at the meeting of the 18 of February, 2006 in CD Juárez. We need to add more people to the Organizing Committee but the process has already started and is underway.

May 1: General Strike!

We make a CALL to all social movement organizations in the U.S. to take part in the General Strike of May 1. The General Strike will also be joined by organizations in México.

Work Commissions:

The Border Social Forum process is organizing permanent ‘work commissions’ to work before and after the Border Social Forum. The Work Commissions are;

  1. Program Commission
  2. Labor and work Commission
  3. Art & Culture Commission
  4. México-US relations Commission
  5. Human Rights Commission (Indigenous & Migrants)
  6. Commission on Women & Youth

Workshops, Panels, and Work Commissions:

The Border Social Forum INVITES your organization to submit and application for a Workshop, Panel or Work Commission. Please send all proposals to: grulla@igc.org en cargo de Rubén Solís.
