#NoBorders: One world, one humanity

Increasingly, we are trapped by militarised borders. Since the ’80s and ’90s, border controls have become more and more brutal, inhumane and all-pervasive. The answer of the capitalist-imperialist States to augmented migration has been to make it impossible for most to travel legally, build detention centres for immigrants and to carry out more deportations.

#NoG20: High-Tech Repression And “Left Extremist Database” In Europe

A process of ongoing high-level cooperation between European governments following the G20 in Hamburg this time last year has led to the creation of a “black bloc task force,” as well as what appears to be a Europe-wide digital database of so-called “left wing extremists” based on a dubious and toxic ideological framework, according to a series of articles, activist commentary, and government documents.

#Salzburg #NoS20! Against the summit of authority, militarized borders and social control!

On September 20, 2018, an informal meeting of the EU heads of state and government will take place in Salzburg (Austria). This meeting is held in the context of the Austrian presidency of the Council of the European Union. The motto of the summit is „A Europe that protects“, and key points on the agenda include so-called „internal security“, the so-called „protection“ of the EU’s external borders, and so-called „cyber security“. We refuse to be deceived by the EU’s excessive use of euphemism. It is crystal-clear that the Salzburg summit will be a summit of authority: a pseudo-democratic spectacle of a bunch of assholes deciding about repressive policies that will boost their position in the struggle for economic and military power – at our expense. „Internal security“ means giving even more weapons of all kinds of those whose job it is to spy on us and arrest us. The „protection of the EU’s external borders“ is the militarized expulsion and deterrence of refugees and migrants. „Cyber security“ means digital control of our data and our actions.

Far-right policies of #EU governments: The formation of the authoritarian states

While the number of people that drown in the Mediterranean sea continues to increase, state violence and illegal push-backs at the land borders also increased. People who rescue migrants at sea are criminalized and Hungary adopted a new law which makes it illegal to support (in general) refugees. At the same time several German states introduced new police laws, the formation of the authoritarian state(s) in Europe is on it’s way. Enough is Enough will continue to support those who are fighting against these far right policies and those who are suffering from these policies. In two weeks, 2 members of the Enough is Enough team will join the Cars of Hope collective again to support refugees in Velika Kladuša (Bosnia), at the Bosnian/Croatian border.
