As long as the US/Mexico border has existed, people having been struggling
against it. It is a highly militarized, violent boundary marking an internal
space of strict migration controls while allowing for unrestricted movement
of capital and wealth. This border exists in a global context of apartheid
borders and restriction of movement. For years around the world people have
been tearing down fences, freeing detainees and fighting for the rights of
migrant people. A global movement against borders and migration controls is
rising. One of many tactics in this movement is the no border camp - a space
for direct action and building community. Join us for a transnational no
border camp on the Mexico/US border.

We are currently an informal network of groups and individuals on both sides
of the border. We are planning a transnational no border action camp for the
fall of 2007, in the region of Calexico and Mexicali. The PGA hallmarks are
the basic points of unity for the mobilization.

The camp is intended to be a spectacular intervention in a discourse that at
times ignores, and at other times justifies, the systematic violence,
indignity and exploitation experienced by migrants in this country. The
mobilization will bring many of us together in one place to share and learn.
It is of equal importance to us that this not be just one isolated event
that lasts a few days in one specific location. We view this mobilization as
a process. It is a process of creating an anti-capitalist network for
freedom of movement. For this mobilization to be a success, groups and
individuals from a diversity of locales and experiences must make this
project their own. We hope that others see this as an opportunity to build a
platform from which this struggle can be demonstrated and articulated.

Several Regional gatherings are currently being planned. Send inquiries to *
nobordercamp {AT} gmail.com* <nobordercamp {AT} gmail.com>

Plans for this mobilization came out of the ongoing process of forming the
deletetheborder network and the "Roots of Resistance" camp hosted by the
organic collective in San Diego in September 2006.

People's Global Action Hallmarks:

1. A very clear rejection of capitalism, imperialism and feudalism; all
trade agreements, institutions and governments that promote destructive
2. We reject all forms and systems of domination and discrimination
including, but not limited to, patriarchy, racism and religious
fundamentalism of all creeds. We embrace the full dignity of all human
3. A confrontational attitude, since we do not think that lobbying can have
a major impact in such biased and undemocratic organisations, in which
transnational capital is the only real policy-maker;
4. A call to direct action and civil disobedience, support for social
movements' struggles, advocating forms of resistance which maximize respect
for life and oppressed peoples' rights, as well as the construction of local
alternatives to global capitalism;
5. An organisational philosophy based on decentralisation and autonomy.
