"No Border Network" Meeting

Warsaw, Poland, May 3-5, 2002

We warmly invite members of the No Border network to Poland,
Europe's Final Frontier for the next network meeting. We understand that
there have been a series of planning meetings this year already concerning
upcoming actions and that many of you will be "meetinged out" by now; still
we are hoping to see you here in Warsaw if you can make it! As you no doubt
know, next year our friends from Ukraine, Belarus and Russia will face new
travel restrictions to Poland and the Border Police, under directives and
with the guidance of and funding from the EU have been super menaces,
impeding not only freedom of movement but also acting as anti-"smuggling"
commandoes to protect corporate interests, etc.; this has already had a very
negative impact on the residents of border regions. With this is mind, we
look forward to all networking which will bring people together in a common
struggle against border regimes.

Please note that the agenda has not been fixed; we would like to get
feedback from people who will be participating as soon as possible so that
we are able to draw up a satisfactory agenda and allot enough time to
discuss each item. As such, we would like people to contact us with any
concerns. We also would like to get a rough idea of how many people are
coming and ask people to please take time to fill out the form below so we
may look after some logistic matters.

We also would like to share the facilitation responsibilities and ask if
anybody would care to facilitate a certain part of the meeting to please let
us know.
