Summer 2008

Summer 2008 The Summer 2008 issue includes articles by Pablo Ruiz and Lisa Sullivan about the Latin America Project Delegations to Nicaragua and Ecuador, where SOA Watch activists were able to connect with human rights groups and to dialogue with the Presidents Daniel Ortega and Rafael Correa. Our Legislative and Research Coordinator Pam Bowman takes Summer 2008 a closer look at the State Department Human Rights Reports and Simón Sedillo discusses in his article "Standing with Those Who Fight for Themselves" international solidarity work and social struggles in the Americas.

ILC.iNK provided an extraordinary map of U.S. interventions in Latin America as a pull-out poster. The map lists the different Republican and Democrat administrations that were in charge at the time of the interventions, which makes it a great educational tool and a reminder for this election year; To create a real change in U.S. foreign policy towards Latin America, it takes more than a change in the White House but the kind of hard and persistent grassroots organizing that has brought all those victories that we are seeing throughout Latin America.

SOA Watch activists will join thousands of social justice activists in the streets of Denver and St. Paul in August/September during the Party Conventions to build grassroots resistance. From November 21-23, the annual November vigil at the gates of Fort Benning will follow the presidential election by two weeks. It will be an opportunity for the progressive movement to set an agenda against oppressive U.S. policy, whatever the result of that election is.

The cover image of this issue was created by Simón P. Sedillo. It portraits Tonantzin , a mother goddess and lunar deity from Aztec mythology, also known as the “Mother of the Corn.” The photo on the right was taken by James Rodríguez at the Grand Indigenous and Peasant March in April ‘08 in Guatemala.
