Making Contact: Borders: What are they good for?

What are borders, and why do we have them? And how is violent border enforcement at the US-Mexico border connected to Israel’s brutal assault on Gaza? And what happens when borders cross living land and communities?

And then we’ll hear a story brought to us by In Confianza, with Pulso about one time when the natural boundary between two countries changed ” and what happened to the people caught on the other side.
