2017 Encuentro

We are still moved and humbled by the energy and power from those who attended the first SOA Watch Border Encuentro. After 26 years of history at the gates of Ft. Benning, SOA Watch held its’ first Convergence in Tucson and ambos Nogales, in order to respond to the present-day call to solidarity with Latin America.

This November 10-12, join us in ambos Nogales for our second bi-national Encuentro at the militarized U.S./Mexico border, to build the grassroots power necessary to challenge the racist status quo and push back against U.S. intervention in Latin America.

As we call attention to the militarization of the border and Latin America, we also call for an end to state-sponsored terrorism and violence against our communities inside the United States. Similarly, 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 U.S. intervention in Latin America.

So join us! Organize your community to join human rights activists, torture survivors, union workers, veterans, community organizers, migrants, faith communities, students and educators from across the Americas.
