DISCUSSION POINTS. There is a drumbeat of opinion in favor of denying the U.S. all future Worldcons, energized by each new instance of an sff fan or writer being put through the wringer by TSA, or denied entry upon arrival in US due to visa rules enforcement. Here are several examples of what has appeared in social media. Apart from Adam Roberts, the rest live in the U.S.
No Worldcons should be scheduled in the USA until this ban is lifted. Simple. https://t.co/tGI1SRLe9Y

And I would urge all U.S.-based SFF writers to strongly support Worldcon bids outside the U.S. Community solidarity with all our international colleagues who deserve to participate without risking their safety. https://t.co/0dPBH0XFNN

Agree wholeheartedly. I will not support future US based Worldcon bids unless this ends. If I had known during the 2016 site selection what kind of cesspit we were going to fall into, I would not have supported the San Jose bid, and this is my home.

There are currently no bids outside the US for WorldCon in 2021 or 2022. I desperately hope that changes. Nothing personally against the American bids, but I cannot in good conscience support having the convention in the US when our shitty government is treating people like this. https://t.co/Fk7HWlMF7h

Happily, the next two World Science Fiction Conventions are outside the US.
Do not support the bid to hold the 2021 Worldcon in Washington, DC. There is no possible future in which the unaccountable iniquity of our border police will be fixed by then. https://t.co/uJKE1zinW3

Then, in a comment on File 770, Olav Rokne opened a discussion about whether the choice of Worldcon sites should be influenced by a nation’s human rights record —
