- No Border network
The No Border Network (In the United Kingdom also called "No Borders Network" or "Noborders Network") refers to loose associations of autonomous organisations, groups, and individuals in Western Europe, Eastern Europe and beyond. They support freedom of movement and resist human migration control by coordinating international border camps, demonstrations, direct actions, and anti-deportation campaigns.
The Western European network opposes what they see as increasingly restrictive harmonisation of asylum and immigration policy in Europe, working to build alliances among migrant laborers and refugees. Common slogans within the Network include, "No Border, No Nation, Stop Deportations!" "Freedom of Movement, Freedom of Residence: Right to Come, Right to Go, Right to Stay!", "No one is illegal" and "Papers for All or No Papers at All!"
No Border Camps
Groups from the No Border network have been involved in organising a number of protest camps (called "No Border Camps" or sometimes "Border Camps"), e.g. in Strasbourg, France (2002), in Frassanito, Italy (2003), Gatwick Airport (2007), United Kingdom, at Patras, Greece, in Calais, France (2009), Lesvos, Greece (2009) and Brussels in September 2010.
On 7 October 2006, an internationally co-ordinated 'Transnational Day of Action Against Migration Controls' of which the No Border Network was the central part, saw protests across the world.
On 18 December 2007, to coincide with the UN International Migrants Day, the network carried out a co-ordinated blockade of Border and Immigration Agency (now UK Border Agency) offices in Bristol, Portsmouth, Newcastle and Glasgow to prevent dawn raids by immigration officers from taking place. This form of action has been repeated across the UK by the network several times since.
