Description This paper is based on the assumption that social movements play a vital role in the transformation of social relations, yet very little is understood as to how movement practices and relationships of solidarity shape radical desires and principles in complimentary and contradictory ways.  More specifically, this papers explores the disjunctive space where social movements resist and attempt to alter power structures and systems in which they are simultaneously embedded. This paper explores questions and challenges that were collectively faced by members of No One Is Illegal-Toronto in attempting to engage in consistent and useful solidarity with Indigenous struggles while engaging in a radical “no borders” politic. It reflects on a six-year period (2005-2010) where the group engaged in actions and discussions that helped to shape its political analysis and its core principles on decolonization.
