The SOA Watch movement began as a response to the call of solidarity to the people affected by the political, economic, and military US intervention in Central America during the 1980’s and 1990’s. However, the patterns of violence and forced migration established during the dirty wars of the 20th century have continued unabated. How do we respond to this reality? How do we build a shared analysis?
In order to respond to these questions and create bonds of solidarity and resistance, SOA Watch invites you to participate in a series of webinars leading up to the Encuentro, to listen, learn and stand up in active solidarity with communities that challenge the militarization of the border.
Our first webinar is this Thursday, July 13 at 8:00 pm ET. During this first conversation we will talk about the history of SOA Watch, the militarization and resistance at the borderlands, and the importance of challenging US-led border imperialism.
