To open a route of freedom: against any border, any racism, for the
freecirculation right for all.The neoliberalist development barricades always
more its borders: theirfrontiers and our seas are full of bodies.Our cities
are full of women and men who are forced to clandestinity andwho are
relegated in to ghettos. For them, our governments invented somenew prisons.
Every year thousands of victims of the neoliberalism, of itspoverty, of its
wars, come in Europe, and often the COUNTRY-GATE is Italy.

This is the real meaning of the Shengen Europe, citadel opened to the
freecirculation of goods and capitals, but closed to the "damneds of
theearth", the refugees, the immigrants, the women and the men victims of
thecapitalistic modernity. They enter from the fissures of the fortress
builtby the euro's governments and by the OTAN: the only possibility that
theneoliberalist blackmail allows them is to be  a workforce divisible
throughthe same mechanisms used for tomatoes and milk, shutting the one in
excessin the concentration camps, or  expelling it.

"Arbeit macht frei" is the inspiring witticism again: from the Austria
ofHaider to the Spain of Aznar, From the Grait Britain of Blair to
theItaly.....this is the new "Zeit Geist", terrible spirit of theEuropean
unity, that open the new millennium.All is free, exempt peoples. The new
walls pass not only towards the seasand the borders, but also in the cities,
in to the commonplace thatrepresents the effect and not the cause of the
mediatic and institutionalracism.

The insecurity and the social trouble are imposed like permanentemergencies,
to give always more space to the policies of social controland
repression.But, in this year, a little door on a space of freedom has been
opened:from Seattle to Davis, from Florence to Wine.......The mobilisations
haveinvolved thousands of women and men also in Europe and Italy, where a
greatnumber of political structures organised common struggles for the work,
thehealth, to contest the places of the exclusion and of the segregation.

These are the autoorganized experiences that started to break up thefortress
Europe, to anticipate its radical transformation in "agora" of ofthe peoples
and of the rights. For this reason, not simplifying thecomplexity of the
antiracist movement, we think that you all feel the needto build connections
and convergences that allow the development of commonmovements, struggles and
aims which are the foundations for an Europeanantagonist policy.

So, we propose the organisation of a meeting in NARDO', Puglia
(SoutheastItaly), approximately for the first week of August, a meeting of
struggleand discussion, with the aim of checking the consolidation of a
network, anEuropean co-ordination to give more force and continuity to
themobilisations against the fortress Europe, its racist laws, its wars.

LET'S MEET IN PUGLIA, THE GREAT OTAN'S FLATTOP IN TO THE ADRIATIC SEA: THE
EUOPEAN MORE "BORDERED" REGION, THE MOST ARMED REGION AGAINST IMMIGRANTS,
ANDLET'S MAKE OF THIS MEETING A COLLECTIVE ACTION OF RADICAL CRITICISM
AGAINSTTHE ARMED BORDERS OF NEOLIBERALISM, OF CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE TO
CONCRETELY GIVELIFE TO THE RIGTH OF EVERY MAN AND EVERY WOMAN TO FREE
CIRCULATE.
