To all organizations and collectives that are working for the closure of migrant detention centres and against migration policies that criminalize migrants and refugees:
On behalf of the Spanish Campaign against Detention Centers (Campaña por el cierre de los CIEs) and other individuals and collectives fighting against migration policies that criminalize migrants and refugees in Spain, we ask you to support 15J (15 June), a day of concerted actions to demand the closure of the migrant detention centres.
First edition took place in 2013, and in this second year we want to invite people beyond Spanish borders to join us.
15J provides a good opportunity to visualize our struggle, create links and to act in a coordinated fashion.
We want to take the streets, schools, theatres, parks and social centers. Let’s make music, poetry, dance, painting, theatre or photography to become ways to denounce the reality of detention centers, which some others are trying to conceal.
15J is open to any idea you come up with: concerts, parades, performances, food fairs, collective street art… Every organization can chose the action or activity that thinks best.
You can send your proposed activity by e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
All activities will be showcased at this website: https://15jdiacontraloscie.wordpress.com/
This website also includes certain practical information to help organisations to join “15J – Action Day Against Detention Centers”. We are currently translating the main content into English.
Hope to hear from you soon,
Organisation Commitee, 15J – Action Day Against Detention Centers
