Unfortunately this year we could not organize our Global Day of Action for Migrants Rights. The effort that was started in 2011 and carried out for 5 years did not create a self-sustaining organization to move forward year after year.

This website will be discontinued on April 16, 2017 when the prepaid hosting contract expires.

The struggle for our rights, however, continues, because we have no choice.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact me at sreyes1[@]

Thank you to all who made those 5 years of events possible.

How the Idea of a Global Day of Action Was Born

In many occasions, during different meetings at the World Social Forums or in other events, the movement in support of migrants, refugees and displaced people has verified the need of global action because the enemy we confront daily is also global. Actions of this type could also represent an important step toward becoming a worldwide movement.

This is why during the World Social Forum for Migrations in Quito, Ecuador (2010) and in the World Social Forum in Dakar, Senegal, last February 2011, we discussed and decided upon carrying out A Day of Global Action Against Racism and for the Rights of Migrants, Refugees and Displaced People. We chose the date December 18, because this is when the United Nations adopted the International Convention on the Protection of the Rights of All Migrant Workers and Members of Their Families.

Additionally this global event also wants to contribute to presenting the "World Charter of Migrants" approved at an international meeting in Gorée on February 4, 2011.
