The elections are over and however you feel about them, one thing is certain: changing the bipartisan U.S. foreign policy towards Latin America and pushing back militarization is a long-term project and it depend on pressure from the grassroots. We need to mobilize and build mass movements that get people in the streets. We need your support to make it happen. As a thank you, we will send you a copy of the map of U.S. Intervention in Latin America and the Caribbean (see below).

The 2012 November Vigil is taking place in 9 days, from November 16-18. It is our chance to set the agenda for justice right from the start (no honeymoon this time around!). Let's remind President Obama and the powers that be that we will not stop, that we are winning, and that they have another opportunity to join the right side of history! (Many groups are still making their travel and lodging plans: get connected!) We will be their in our thousands demanding that the Obama administration close the SOA/WHINSEC and begin new relationships with Latin America. If you have stood vigil at the gates of Fort Benning before, now is the time to mobilize others in your community to join you. If you have never come to the November Vigil before; this is the year! Make history and be part of the largest annual anti-militarization convergence in North America. Come take a stand for justice, peace, dignity and self-determination.

With about $6 billion dollars, the elections were the most expensive elections in history and they diverted attention and money to various candidates and political parties... as a result, we need your financial contribution now to help cover the cost for the stage and sound equipment, for the rental of the Columbus Convention Center for the November convergence, to set up a media office, and more.

Thank you!!

The design team of ILC.iNK created an extraordinary bilingual and union-printed map of U.S. interventions in Latin America and the Caribbean. It lists the Republicans and Democrats who were U.S. presidents at the time of the interventions, which makes it a great educational tool and reminder following the re-election on President Barack Obama; to create real change in the bi-partisan U.S. foreign policy towards Latin America, it'll take more than elections but the kind of hard and persistent grassroots organizing that has brought the victories that we are seeing in Latin America.
