telephones are cellular, computers
are portable and the quickly moving
bytes are invisible. the easier money and goods flow across the territories
of nations, the more western europe and united states close their doors to
migration. "we don't want you, we only want to take everything you've
got!". this could be a description of the interrelations of postcolonial
exploitation. people who try to enter the so called first world - as
refugees in order to escape prosecution or simply looking for some luck -
are forced into illegality. One of the central political struggles is to
combat the hegemony of borders and the regime of migration, to support migrants and
refugees, documented or undocumented, in their fights for the right to
live, where they like and how they like.
because no one is illegal...
