Sin Fronteras Mission Statement
Sin Fronteras Portladn formed to confront the growing violence, and
economic disparity caused by the U.S./Mexico Border (and all national
borders) and U.S. Imperialism. The movement for immigrant rights and border
justice has been focused on pandering to politicians, and trying to
"reform" blatantly racist laws. We do not believe white supremacy can be
"reformed". Where we see the left in the United States has failed, we seek
to participate in the building of popular social movements towards
economic and social justice; here in the belly of the beast.
Portland Sin Fronteras is committed to bringing the popular resistance
struggles of Latin America across the U.S. border into the heart of the
global capitalist empire. We seek to educate, mobilize and empower people
by disseminating the radical ideas and culture from these struggles. We
seek to inspire and build with others, towards taking action in our lives
and our communities against racism, militarization, liberalism and build
our vision of another world. A world driven by needs and not profit, a
world where freedom of movement is about people not global financial
Our focus as a group lies in building and understanding the border and in
fighting white supremacy; and our aim is to combat capitalism as a system
of domination and to link the anticapitalist struggles of Latin America to
our own struggles here at home.
LIBERTAD PARA TOD@S!
