A Bordered Life

Stories from Rûnbîr Serkepkanî

May 28, 2020 | 12:00 CT

Borders are artificial lines imposed by political bodies to separate geographic areas. They change over time, separate and divide, and can be used to keep people in and keep them out. Every day, all over the world, people attempt to cross borders as they make one of the most difficult decisions in their lives: to leave their homes in search of a safer, better life.

Hear from Rûnbîr Serkepkanî, as he shares his own experiences of growing up in Kurdistan, crossing borders and becoming the CPT Support Coordinator for the Aegean Migrant Solidarity Program, working with refugees on the island of Lesvos, Greece. 

Join Rûnbîr on Thursday, May 28th at 12pm CT. We hope to see you there!

Rûnbîr was born in 1984 in the village of Serkepkan, in the Akoyan Valley in the Northern Part of the Zagros mountains. He considers Anatolia, Mesopotamia, Levant and the Zagros Mountains to be his home. Rûnbîr's goal is to see the whole planet without borders, consisting of sustainable, healthy and egalitarian communities in confederation with each other. He currently lives in Scandinavia with his family. For Rûnbîr, struggling for the wholeness of the world, is to celebrate life with all its manifestations and complexity.
