We are moved and humbled by the energy and power from those who attended the SOA Watch Border Encuentro on November 10-12, 2017. Our move to the border responds to the present-day call to solidarity in Latin America. The mobilization at the border in Nogales is one more way to fight for the closure of the School of the Americas/WHINSEC and an end to US intervention in Latin America. The second bi-national Encuentro at the militarized US/Mexico border aimed to build the grassroots power necessary to challenge the racist statutes quo and push back against US intervention in Latin America.
Thank you for joining indigenous communities, migrants, human rights activists, torture survivors, union workers, veterans, community organizers, faith communities, students and educators from across the Americas. See you all in 2018!
In the struggle,
