Harsha Walia and Mizue Aizeki Discuss “Border & Rule” – Writing the Third World series

May 5, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Join Center for Political Education for a discussion of Harsha Walia’s new book, Border & Rule: Global Migration, Capitalism, and the Rise of Racist Nationalism.
Harsha will be in conversation with Mizue Aizeki, Interim Executive Director of Immigrant Defense Project. Harsha and Mizue will discuss how economic and political forces in the US and across the globe have shaped the current international system of migrant and border policing. They will also talk about what the crises of displacement and criminalization mean for Left organizing today.
This conversation is the first event of CPE’s Writing the Third World series that puts scholars and movement leaders and organizers in conversation about a recent work of scholarship on internationalist struggles for liberation and self-determination.
Harsha Walia is the award-winning author of Undoing Border Imperialism and Border and Rule. Trained in law, she is a community organizer and campaigner in migrant justice, feminist, anti-capitalist, abolitionist, and anti-imperialist movements.
Mizue Aizeki is the Interim Executive Director of Immigrant Defense Project. Mizue’s work focuses on ending the injustices —including criminalization, imprisonment, and exile— at the intersections of the criminal and immigration systems. Mizue guides IDP’s local and state policy work, including the ICE Out of Courts Campaign and IDP’s campaigns to end the growing entanglement between local policing and ICE. Mizue also leads IDP’s project on Surveillance, Technology, and Immigration Policing, which includes building community and legal defenses against ICE raids and the growing homeland security apparatus.
