More about ‘No One Is Illegal’, Haymarket Books, 2006:


In "No One Is Illegal", Mike Davis and Justin Akers Chacón expose the racism of anti-immigration vigilantes and put a human face on the immigrants who daily risk their lives to cross the border to work in the United States. Countering the mounting chorus of anti-immigrant voices, "No One Is Illegal" debunks the leading ideas behind the often violent right-wing backlash against immigrants, revealing their deep roots in U.S. history, and documents the new civil rights movement that has mounted protests around the country to demand justice and dignity for immigrants.

"No One Is Illegal" features moving, evocative photos from award-winning photographer Julián Cardona.

Justin Akers Chacón is a professor of U.S. History and Chicano Studies in San Diego, California. He has contributed to the International Socialist Review and the book "Immigration: Opposing Viewpoints".

Mike Davis is a historian, activist, and author of many books, including "City of Quartz", "The Monster at Our Door", and "Planet of Slums". Davis teaches in the Department of History at the University of California at Irvine.

Julián Cardona was born in 1960 in Zacatecas, Mexico, and migrated to the border city of Juárez with his family as a small child. He worked as a technician in the maquiladora industry before becoming a photojournalist in 1993. In 2004, Cardona received a Cultural Freedom Fellowship from the Lannan Foundation.

More about CKLN:


Located at Ryerson University in downtown Toronto, CKLN provides original programming all day and night, every day of the year. Our programming is produced almost entirely by a volunteer staff of over 200, who come to CKLN from every neighbourhood and community of Toronto.

The guiding policies of CKLN FM prohibit material or comment that is racist, sexist, ageist, homophobic, anti- Semitic or that maligns disabled peoples, working class, poor and unemployed people.

Further to the above, CKLN strives to:

Be a forum for extensive cultural and historical contextualization and development of musical, artistic and other cultural expressions, along with socially progressive ideas which arise from communities, constituencies, sectors and individuals who are socially, politically and economically disadvantaged and whose access to public communications and media is thereby limited. Specifically women, people of colour, First Nations peoples, lesbians and gay men, students, working people, poor people, disabled people - among others. In particular those within these communities who are the least publicly represented and who are working for visionary and innovative social changes are prioritized.

Engage in honest and fair assessments of the work of community and non-profit groups in areas of social, political, economic, scientific and cultural development with the groups themselves participating towards more effective and integrated efforts in the future.

Connect and link local communities and constituencies with the work and expressions of their counterparts in other parts of North America and around the world.

Ensure reasonable access to training in radio broadcasting for communities and constituencies as well as individuals who propose to produce programming that is representative, creative and forward looking.

Provide Toronto's diverse and rapidly changing audience with the opportunity to hear a wide range of differing cultural expressions and thereby encourage communication, solidarity and cooperation between and among oppressed communities and constituencies.
