We’ve started a new year and our movement continues to be stronger than ever. Together we actively challenge U.S. military and economic intervention in the Americas and together we are actively working to build a culture of peace. Our movement is ever evolving, building and advancing a new vision for our work and for a just world. We remain committed to supporting the growing leadership of youth within our movement. To that end, we are pleased to introduce a project of our Youth Collective -- Rooted in Resistance, Sembrando Soberania: Youth Encuentro in Latin America.

Call on the State Department to stop legitimizing fraudulent Honduran elections PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 04 December 2013 20:55
On Sunday, November 24, Hondurans went to the polls in record numbers to vote in their presidential elections. In the country with the highest murder rate in the world and targeted repression of the opposition and social movements, many Hondurans voted for change, including for Xiomara Castro, the candidate for the new LIBRE party which was created out of the resistance to the 2009 SOA-graduate led coup that ousted her husband, President Mel Zelaya. Despite outright vote buying, vote counting problems, selling of election credentials, irregularities in posted voting certificates, discrepancies in the results released by Honduras' Electoral Tribunal (TSE) and those received by the parties, and other signs of fraud, Juan Orlando Hernandez of the ruling (National) party was declared the winner. Libre and PAC, another new party running on an anti-corruption platform, have refused to accept the TSE's results, citing widespread fraud, but the US has supported the ruling party, calling the elections "transparent." Call on the U.S. to stop legitimizing fraudulent elections in Honduras!

The Stewart Detention Center and the School of the Americas: Imperialism and Pain Profiting in Georgia PDF Print E-mail
Written by SOA Watch

From November 22 through the 24, we held the 23rd annual School of the Americas Vigil in Columbus, Georgia. November 22 also marked the 7th annual Shut Down Stewart Detention Center Vigil in nearby Lumpkin, Georgia. It was the sixth year in which large numbers of SOA Watch activists have participated in the Stewart Vigil, which has become the first event during the School of the Americas Vigil. This year once again saw a moving rally, march, and vigil in which the reprehensible treatment of migrants in the U.S. was made painfully evident to the over 300 protesters in attendance. We sang, we laughed, we cried, and we raised our voices in unison to say "!Ya Basta!" "Enough!" to the incarceration of migrants.

Corrections Corporations of America (CCA) is the largest for-profit prison company in the U.S. CCA is the owner of the Stewart Detention Center, which is the largest immigrant prison in the country. The fact that CCA and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) warehouse almost 2,000 men in Stewart simply for seeking a better life for themselves and their families is infuriating enough. That they do so for profit is immoral. But that is only the tip of the iceberg of the injustice occurring in Lumpkin and other private and public immigrant prisons across the country.
