Migrant Tribunal on the GFMD

The International Migrants Alliance invites you to the Migrant Tribunal on the GFMD (Global Forum on Migration and Development).

The tribunal is a two-day political event that puts in trial the Global Forum on Migration and Development (GFMD) and its neoliberal globalization design on migration. This event will also highlight the resistance of grassroots migrants against such machinations.

The tribunal will hear testimonies from witnesses from migrant grassroots organizations which actively oppose the GFMD. These are organizations that organized the series of International Assembly of Migrants and Refugees (IAMR) in Manila (2008), Athens (2009) and Mexico City (2010). Presentations of the witnesses will be the position taken by each of the assembly held.

The judges shall be prominent individuals from international organizations concerned with migration and migrant workers. They will formulate the political judgment on the GFMD based on the presentations of the grassroots migrant workers.

It is going to happen on November 28-29, 2012 in the University of the Philippines in Quezon City, Philippines.
