Tucuman Travel

Tucuman Travel on From the polemics and debates that followed these important and to some extent politically confusing incidents, in which the borders that separate migration activists from detained migrants were temporarily removed by the physical dismantling of fences, we learned the perils of too insistently correlating the activist desire to challenge or democratize borders with the risk assumed by migrants who actually transgress these borders. As tempting and as politically effective as slogans like Siamo tutti clandestine (We are all illegal migrants) may be, there are important differences of ethics and experience at hand here. These are dif- ferences that we attempt to keep in mind, both theoretically and politically, as we draw on our experiences to inform the arguments and concepts that populate the following chapters. Although our experiences of migration activism have unfolded in contexts where there has been attention to global connections, they are by necessity limited. Over the years we have had the opportunity to participate in research projects, both academic and activist, that have taken us to sites where many of the questions and challenges posed by this book come into dramatic relief: production zones in China, new towns in India, La Salada informal market in Buenos Aires, and the fortified borderzones on both sides of the Strait of Gibraltar, just to name a few. These are all situations we write about. We also seek to make connections between them and other instances of bordering in ways that intertwine ethnographic observation and political analysis’.
