Convex real projective surfaces are quotients of simply convex domains in the real projective plane RP(2) under the properly discontinuous and free action of a projective automorphism group. Such surfaces carry Hilbert metrics defined by logarithms of cross ratios. We prove an analogous proposition to the Margulis lemma in hyperbolic geometry holding for such a surface Sigma with a Hilbert metric. This allows us to decompose Sigma into thick and thin components. We show a compactness result that given a certain collection of simple closed curves alpha(1), ..., alpha(n) on Sigma, the subset of the deformation space of convex structures P(Sigma) corresponding to structures where the Hilbert lengths of alpha(1), ..., alpha(n) are hounded above is compact.
