Cold Nights, Hot Issues! Presents:
Resistance Against & Across Borders
*A Minnehaha Free Space Panel Series Discussion*
Friday, March 30th
Dinner at 6:30pm
Panel Discussion at 7pm

Join us for a conversation about immigration rights, migrants’ struggles, movements of solidarity with Palestine, decolonization struggles, and how local organizers are bringing these issues home. Panelists will discuss such topics as: experiences of borders, how their activist work deals with resisting borders and enacting solidarity across borders, ways movements can support each other, how strategies of controlling borders and policing migrants are changing with globalization and the ‘war on terror,’ ways that migration struggles interrelate with movements for de-colonization, among other pressing issues.
