Sindillar’s 3rd PODCAST
The third and last podcast of Sindillar’s serie with thoughts on Coronavirus confinement and its impact on migrant and care workers’ lives is already release! You can link here to the audio piece entitled “Struggles and alliances that intersect”.
Narratives: “MEMORIAS DE LAS LUCHAS MIGRANTES” / “Memories of migrant struggles”
Through this link you can access the narratives elaborated within the research “Memories of the collective action for the rights of migrant people in Barcelona”, by the UAB. These texts collect the memories of the political struggles in Barcelona for the rights of migrant people between the 1990 and 2017. They refer to the collective struggles that denounce the exclusion and infringement by the State and its institutions by hindering or denying legal-administrative regularization and the social, health and labor rights of immigrants. But also the struggles that demonstrate the capacity and agency of these people to intervene critically in the socio-economic and political context they inhabit. Thus, remembering and narrating it from a place that pretends to be erased, silenced and unrecognized is always an affirmative action: both in the past and in the present, the final cry “we are here” resounds.
COLLECTION: Structural Racism and Police Violence. Causes, Impact, and Reform.
A collection that shares freely accessible articles (including the one mentioned in the Newsletter #1, “Memories of the struggles for the rights of immigrant women in Barcelona, by Catalina Álvarez Martínez-Conde, Clara Elena Romero Boteman, Karina Fulladosa Leal, Marisela Montenegro, three members of BRIDGES) to support researchers in future scholarship and amplify their critical work; educators as they discuss the impacts of systemic racism with students; and policymakers and advocates in their fight to make sweeping reform.

Podcasts from Sindillar
BRIDGES colleagues from SINDILLAR are publishing a series of three podcasts where they share their thoughts on Coronavirus confinement and its impact on their lives as migrant domestic and care workers. They present it this way: “From our precarious but subversive confinements, we spin sentiments and thoughts of what and how we are going through this present moment as domestic and care workers, migrants, with and without papers, with balconies and without them, with rooms and without them, registered (as inhabitants) and without being registered. As is the custom in our doing, a doing among diverse women, these reflections simmer, ignoring the analytical narratives of immediacy, avant-garde and opinion, in short, in ways that we hope to be part of a possible extinction among others… ”.
Podcast 1: “Confined but never defeated“
