No more slaves…

We don’t have answers to the questions politicians ask about migrants, crime and security – simply because their questions are wrong. We think the right question is not what the State should do with asylum seekers, undocumented and “illegal” migrants. The right question is: Do we want a world that locks people up within borders, laws and prison cells? Do we want a social order that condems men and women to endless exploitation, puts them into prisons and deports them just because their documents aren’t right? Do we want a society that controls, isolates, alienates, humiliates and eventually takes every bit of humanity away from people?

Leaflet found on the activist blog Macerie and distributed at recent demonstrations in solidarity with migrants.
