Save the Date! SOA Watch's Spring Days of Action April 14 -18, 2016 in DC

The refugee crisis, forced migration, mass incarceration, police brutality and militarization at home & abroad, enforced disappearances - so many of the most pressing issues of our time are fueled by the senseless Drug War, yet we have largely failed to build the coalitions to help bring an end to these devastating policies. The Central American refugee crisis and the Ayotzinapa disappearances cannot be fully understood, nor addressed without addressing the Drug War.

Join us in Washington D.C. this April 14-18 for concert, advocacy training, lobbying, direct action and more, including the next step in our campaign to pressure Vice President Biden for an Executive Order to close the SOA. Stay tuned for more details.

Over the last 18 months, SOA Watch has increased our agitation against the Drug War through protest, popular education, and lobbying efforts. We will continue doing so at the Spring Days of Action, where we will also discuss the 2016 Border/Root Causes of Migration Vigil in Nogales, AZ, and other ways to plug into the work of SOA Watch and the greater solidarity movement. Given the stepped up U.S.-led militarization of not only U.S. borders but also of Mesoamerican borders, most notably Plan Frontera Sur in Mexico, and the recent raids on refugee families inside the U.S., it is an important time to collectively and forcefully respond against these injustices. We need your participation to make change happen!
