A lxs participantes de Bici Bici 2019 Tijuana

Escribimos para informarlxs que a una persona que estaba asistiendo al
evento se le ha pedido irse, y le hemos excluido del espacio/festival.

Nos hemos enterado que Eric, que es voluntarix con Working Bikes Chicago,
tiene una historia de trabajar con las fuerzas armadas y en el servicio
secreto/servicios de inteligencia de Estados Unidos. Ellx actualmente
trabaja en la compra y venta de oro, petróleo, gas, plata, y otros
“recursos” naturales, y ha dicho que no tiene problemas ni morales ni
éticos en hacer este trabajo.

Enclave Caracol tiene una política estricta de “no policías” que existe
para la seguridad de las personas que usan el edificio. Estamos activamente
participando no solamente en la resistencia contra el sistema existente,
sino también en construir alternativas para el futuro -- ambas cosas que
nos ponen en conflicto frecuente con autoridades y corporaciones estatales.
Además, Enclave es un espacio feminista, anti capitalista y anti
autoritario. Debido a la proximidad de esta persona a las autoridades
violentas estatales y la destrucción de tierras, comunidades, culturas y
modos de sustento a través de la extracción de recursos, a ellx se le ha
excluido. Esto no sólo se trata de las personas que asisten a Bike Bike
2019, sino también es un acto de solidaridad con las personas que resisten
la destrucción ambiental, la colonización y la desposesión en todas partes
del mundo.

La decisión de excluir a esta persona del evento no se hizo mediante un
proceso de consenso absoluto. Esto quiere decir que algunas personas dentro
de las colectividades no están de acuerdo con la decisión, o no estuvieron
presentes cuando se tomó la decisión por cuestiones dentro de la dinámica
del evento. Sin embargo, apoyaron la decisión. Estamos conscientes de que
la decisión no es fácil, que no vamos a satisfacer a todas las personas,
pero estamos abiertxs al diálogo y al constante aprendizaje.

Con amor y solidaridad,

Miembrxs de

Bicis Disidentes y Enclave Caracol

To the participants of Bike Bike 2019 Tijuana,



We write to inform you all that a person attending the event has been asked
to leave and excluded from the space/festival.



It has come to our attention that Eric, who is a volunteer with Working
Bikes Chicago, has a history of working in the military and in
intelligence/secret services of the United States. He/they currently work
buying and selling gold, petroleum, gas, silver and other natural
´resources,’ and have said that they have no moral or ethical problem in
this line of work.

Enclave Caracol has a strict ¨no police¨ policy which exists for the safety
of people who use the building. We are actively involved in not only
resisting the existing system, but in building alternatives for the future
– both of which are things that bring us into regular conflict with state
authorities and corporations. Furthermore, Enclave is a feminist,
anti’capitalist and anti’authoritarian space. Due to this person’s
proximity to violent state authority and the destruction of land,
communities, cultures and livelihoods via resource extraction, they have
been excluded. This is not only about the people attending Bike Bike 2019,
but is also an act of solidarity with people resisting environmental
destruction, colonization and dispossession all over the world.

The decision to exclude this person from the event was not made via
consensus, meaning some people within the collectives do not agree with the
decision, or were not present when the decision was being made. However
they support the decision. We are aware that the decision is not easy, that
we are not going to satisfy everyone, but we are open to dialogue and
constantly learning.



With love and solidarity,



Members of

Bicis Disidentes and Enclave Caracol
