HARSHA WALIA on Dismantling Imagined, Militarized, and Colonial Borders /211

For The Wild

Science & Medicine

Migration has always existed, but in terms of human migration and climate change, we are poised to experience one of the greatest occurrences of global migration humanity has ever known. The number of migrants is now growing faster than our world’s population, and with this growth, we’ve seen the tremendous human rights violations and acts of depravity enforced by agents of the State across all global borderlands. This has caused many to call for serious inquiry and reform when it comes to national border guard agencies, but doing so fails to recognize that the border itself is inherently violent. In this episode of For The Wild, we talk with guest Harsha Walia on why it is imperative to rid the concept of legal/illegal personhood in movements for the climate and environment. Harsha Walia a South Asian activist, writer, and popular educator rooted in migrant justice and Indigenous solidarity. She is the award-winning author of Undoing Border Imperialism and is currently the Executive Director of British Columbia’s Civil Liberties Association. Music by John Newton, Troll Dolly, and Harrison Basch. Visit our website at forthewild.world for the full episode description, references and action points.
