The No Borders Camp succesfully established itself on the U.S./Mexico border today. After a nearly four- mile march to the site, about 100 activists on the U.S. side and 25 activists on the Mexico side were met with a heavy border patrol presence. Nonetheless, the activists were allowed to set up the camp while the Border Patrol set up various sets of stadium lighting, barking dogs and different types of weaponry.

El Campamento Contra las Fronteras se estableció el día de hoy. Después de una marcha de ocho kilometros, cerca de cien activistas del lado gabacho y 25 activistas en el lado mexicano se encontraron con una presencia pesada de la Patrulla Fronteriza. Sin embargo, los activistas pusieron el campamento mientras la Patrulla Fronteriza trajo luces del estadio, perros ladando y distintos tipos de armas.

During the march and setting up the camp yesterday, and today the Mexican "side" actually had numbers more like ranging from 60 to 100. Participants include local mexicali activists, activists from other states of Mexico, and the US, as well as activists from all over the world.
