No borders!
Nation state crisis, anarchist response

Often mislabeled a migrant crisis, the uprooting and degradation of the lives of countless millions result, in fact, from the routine exercise of raw national power. For solutions to this crisis we look not to more top-level planning but to bottom-up resistance and global solidarity.

We welcome essays and reports, broad analyses as well as personal understandings of the problems and possibilities for challenging all borders and the border enforcers that modern society has planted in our heads.
