in Brussels
from 25th of September till 3th of October included


The NO BORDER CAMP IN BRUSSELS follows the tradition of No Border camps, organised all over the world since the 90s. Neither a normative frame, nor an organization, the No Border Camp is most of all a meeting, a convergence of struggles aiming to end the system of borders that divide us all.

Like in Calais or Lesbos in 2009 it’s about building a temporary and autonomous space of living, thinking, sharing (experiences, skills, information, analysis,…) actions concerning the questions of borders, migration and the right of freedom of movement and to chose the place where you want to live.


- No one is illegal !
- No borders, no nations !
- Equal rights for everybody !
- Freedom of movement and settlement !
- Against capitalist and authoritarian systems that are the origin of forced exile, wars and misery.


- The camp and the actions organized during the No Border are based on self-organisation.
- Sexist, racist and violent behaviour are not tolerated in the camp.
- The targets of the actions of the No Border are multiple and various, they are not only related to the structures of the repression of migrants : the anti-migratory policies take place in a capitalist and European structure that is the base of the problem, repression does not concern only migrants.
- All the participants of the camp accept and respect the different ways of acting.
- All the participants of the camp are solidary against state repression.


Belgium will take presidency of the European council from 1st July until 21st December 2010. As the capital of Europe Brussels is the symbol of the development of the European (anti-) migration policy.

In reality the European Union has, over the last 10 years, increasing closed its doors to migrants, constructing a real fortress Europe. The EU strengthens the repression (forcing people into clandestine existence, raids , locking people up and expulsing "people without papers") that is already enforced by Belgium and the different member states.

So Europe is organising, with the help of Frontex (European agency organising the operational cooperation at the exterior borders) border patrols, helicopters, boats, and it shifts it’s frontiers towards Asia and Africa by financing states (from Ukraine up to Morocco) to enforce the prevention of migration in its name.

By organising a no border camp in Brussels we want to question this (anti-) migration policy.


- The construction of the camp will be from September 24th until September 26th 2010.
- Activities will start on September 27th and will continue until October 3rdd.
- During this week we would like to see Brussels swarming with different activities about (anti-) migration policy and it’s consequences. The camp is also offering the opportunity to fight together with different action strategies, but also to build up a longer term dynamic We invite all (individuals or collectives) to participate as they see fit and to propose their own activities or cooperations.

There will be four big action days :

On 26th September there will be a demo at a local detention centre. The demo will also be linked to the commemoration of Semira Adamu, who was killed in 1998 by cops who wanted to deport her.

On 27th September there will be some kind of blockade of the European Defence Agency.

On 29th September there will be a mass action against the ECOFIN summit.

On 2nd October there will be a No Border No Nation demo.

Also there will be other actions, workshops, presentations and so on. And there is many space for your ideas.


A No Border Camp is what everybody wants to make of it, everybody can play his/her part and offer support.

- By participating in the organisation of the camp, by working in one of the different workinggroups (mobilisation, logistics, media, big demo, internet, medical,programme, welcoming committee, finances,translations, cooking, legal)

- By making a proposal for a workshop, film, expo, lecture. We propose the following themes :

  • The security politics Frontex and the militarisation of borders.
  • Clandestinity and the struggle of migrants.
  • Capitalism and migration.
  • Closed detention centres for migrants and deportations.
  • European (anti-)migration politics.

- By mobilising, participating in actions, coming to the big demo, or by organising your own actions that can halt the deportation machine.

- By organising a benefit (a concert, a night out, a dinner)

- By proposing sites, sleeping places for actions or activists.

- By making a financial or material donation

- By offering material (tents, vans, kitchen material, portable toilets…)

You also can join us. The more we are to bring about change, the faster fortress Europe will fall.
