Spring 2010

Spring 2010

The military coup in Honduras, the continued training of soldiers at the School of the Americas and the ongoing militarization of Latin America leads SOA Watch activists to question where the change is that Barack Obama had promised. The Spring 2010 issue includes two commentaries that offer views on the subject.

The issue also addresses the reality of U.S./Latin American relations today.  Spring 2010The front page of the Spring issue issue will feature an article on the recently approved U.S. access to seven new military bases in Colombia.  This agreement signed by both U.S. and Colombian officials in late 2009 has been the source of much controversy, and there is fear that such a move toward greater militarization in South America could be cause for greater destabilization in the region.

This issue of Presente also features an article recapping the 2009 November Vigil at the gates of Fort Benning.  This extraordinary event gathered thousands of individuals including many labor organizers, victims of torture, students, human rights activists, and vowed religious for three days and two nights of sacred remembrance, energetic protest, educational workshops, and transformative song and dance!  The Spring 2010 issue also features a report back from the January 25th trial of the SOA 4.  Nancy Gwin, Ken Hayes, Michael Walli, and Fr. Louis Vitale were arrested for bringing the call for justice and accountability onto FortBenning the morning of November 22, 2009.  Nancy, Ken and Louie were sentenced to six months in federal prison. They used the January 25 trial as an opportunity to speak truth to power in the courtroom. Michael refused to return to Columbus for the trial and the judge issued an arrest warrant againt him. There will be no better place to read all about it then in the Spring issue of Presente!
Other very important pieces include information about the SOA Watch Partnership America Latina “Encuentro” in Venezuela, and the SOA Watch Spring Event in D.C. in April.  Additionally you will find a legislative update from SOA Watch Legislative Director, Pam Bowman, and a two page, full-color comic depicting the history of the SOA created by artists Dan Archer and Nikil Saval.  All of this and more can be found in the Spring issue!
