Spread the Word through Direct Action Print
Nov. 16-18: Creative Actions Keep Up the Pressure!
Taking the Message to the Streets!

With thousands coming to the gates of Fort Benning this November, we have a renewed opportunity to spread our message of hope and justice through the hemisphere. Our very presence at the gates of Fort Benning keeps the pressure on those who seek to destroy our world with their greed, and is a beacon of hope for all those who seek alternatives.

Through nonviolent direct action, we can amplify that message. Creative direct actions have been an important strategy for successful movements across the world, and SOA Watch activists have been at the forefront of creative actions to call attention to our cause.
