Borders are more than geographical lines - they impact all our lives, whether it's the inhumanity of deportations, or a rise in racist attacks in the wake of the EU referendum. Border Nation shows how oppressive borders must be resisted.
Author Leah Cowan explores media myths that vilify migrants, how companies like G4S make profits from borders and the ramping up of everyday borders through legislation. She looks at the colonial origins of borders and how the approach to border crossings damages our communities.
From demonstrations inside detention centres to migrant-led campaigns and acts of cross-border solidarity, people are fighting back to stand up for everyone's freedom to move.
