SOA Watch News & Updates
On October 9, we marched on the U.S. Southern Command in Florida, and next month, thousands of us will converge on Fort Benning, Georgia. The SOA Watch Council and staff traveled to Miami, Florida, to join SOA Watch South Florida's mobilization against the U.S. Southern Command. We made our voices heard and delivered the message that the people of the Americas no longer tolerate the "boot to the neck foreign policy" towards Latin America and the Caribbean. We are fired up, and the organizing and mobilizing for the November Vigil is now in high gear across the country.

We need your support to make the November Vigil a success! Click here to make a donation. We need to raise $50,000 by October 28 to to cover the cost of our workshop and concert space, to pay for stage and sound equipment, to set up a media office, etc.. Please make a donation now.


#OccupyTogether

We are excited about the surge of social justice activism in the US, that started with the Occupy Wall Street movement (Click here for photos.).

SOA Watch activists around the country have joined local occupy actions and are infusing the anti-militarization voice into the movement (The SOA provides the military muscle to protect the greed of the 1% at the expense of the 99% throughout the Americas.)

Haven't joined your local Occupy action yet? October 15 would be a great day to start - people around the world are going to gather in solidarity to initiate global change. Find your local action here. Don't miss out on being part of this historic movement, meet fellow activists in your community and use the opportunity to spread the word and mobilize for the November Vigil at the gates of Fort Benning, Georgia.

SOA Watch Haiti Delegation Report Back





Last week SOA Watch led a human rights delegation to Haiti with a focus on gaining firsthand knowledge of the effects of the seven-year military occupation by 13,000 troops and police of the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH), while also looking at concrete expressions of U.S. foreign policy towards Haiti. In addition, the delegation of 17 activists from around the U.S. visited numerous positive initiatives organized and carried out by Haitians that promote the dignity and sovereignty of their nation.
