Calling on all allied organizations and collectives to endorse the 2018 SOA Watch Encuentro!

This year’s 3rd Border Encuentro at the US/Mexico in ambos Nogales is a direct response to the call to active solidarity to resist militarization, support refugees and migrants, and to denounce the US military, political and economic policies in Latin America that create the conditions for forced displacement and violence. There is no wall or border that can deter the solidarity of people!

To generate the biggest possible impact, it is important to build a strong coalition of groups to amplify our demands and to challenge the oppressive systems that perpetuate US imperialism, militarization, and racism.

Endorse the encuentro!
