We discussed at the last meeting of No Borders (London) to circulate a
proposal amongst No Borders groups around the country to all meet up for a

Over the past year, new groups have formed using the name/banner "No
Borders" and therefore will feel that, though informal, we can potentially
create a relationship with different groups with the view of strengthening
the resistance and level of agititation against the Border regimes,

work on a structure together with other groups, with workshops and
discussions that encompass our political structure and enable us to move
forward to tak eaction, and with the additional aim of welcoming those with
an interest in becomming involved in No Borders activity.


Sat 4th/Sun 5th March or Sat 11th/Sun 12th March
