Partisan is pleased to be hosting a talk alongside No Borders Manchester as we welcome Luke de Noronha and Gracie Mae Bradley to talk about their new book Against Borders – The Case for Abolition which is out now on Verso.

Borders divide workers and families, fuel racial division, and reinforce global disparities. They encourage the expansion of technologies of surveillance and control, which impact migrants and citizens both.

Bradley and de Noronha tell what should by now be a simple truth: borders are not only at the edges of national territory, in airports, or at border walls. Borders are everyday and everywhere; they follow people around and get between us, and disrupt our collective safety, freedom and flourishing.

Against Borders is a passionate manifesto for border abolition, arguing that we must transform society and our relationships to one another, and build a world in which everyone has the freedom to move and to stay.

The talk will consist of a series of questions by the hosts No Borders, which would be followed by an audience Q+A and should last for around an hour. All of the proceeds from the talk will be split between Partisan and No Borders and copies of the book will be available for purchase on the day.

Information on how to find us and accessibility can be found via our ‘Plan Your Visit Page.’
