- "Bajor for Bajorans." - Circle motto.
The Alliance for Global Unity was a Bajoran extremist group that rejected the outside influence of non-Bajorans and aimed to expel all aliens from Bajor. It was also known as the Circle, after its insignia. (Decipher RPG module: Aliens)
In 2318, the Circle was active in opposing involvement of Cardassians on Bajor, but at the time was considered to be an extremist group. They would continue their opposition to the Cardassians throughout the 2320s until the Occupation of Bajor. (ST - Terok Nor novel: Day of the Vipers)
The Alliance was led by Jaro Essa, who also held the position of a Minister in the Bajoran government. In 2370, with Bajor teetering on the edge of a possible civil war, Jaro launched a coup d'état. However the senior staff of Deep Space 9 discovered that the Cardassians were covertly supporting the Circle, and the revelation discredited the movement and ended the coup attempt. (DS9 episodes: "The Homecoming", "The Circle", "The Siege")
Later that year, the Provisional Government began including more Bajoran extremist factions in talks, to as to avoid more "internal squabbles" like the Circle's coup. Benjamin Sisko told Declan Keogh and Joseph Shabalala about this soon after. (DS9 - The Brave and the Bold, Book One novella: The Second Artifact)
After the coup, the Circle Commission was established to investigate and prosecute those involved. In 2372, General Krim Aldos was exonerated of any wrong doing. (DS9 novel: Bajor: Fragments and Omens)
The remaining members of the Circle who had not been arrested went underground following the coup. In 2370 the remaining members of the Circle attempted to assassinate Commander Sisko and Major Kira, and tried to sabotage the launch of the USS Hannibal. (DS9 novel: Antimatter)
The Circle was an extremist nationalist movement that sought to overthrow the Bajoran provisional government and violently opposed Bajor's associations with any government as the believed that they were exchanging one master for another. Their motto gave an ugly face to the traditional Bajoran desire for isolation. (Decipher RPG module: Aliens)
