The ¡Presente! newspaper is one part of the movement to close the School of the Americas and to change the racist system of violence and domination that the institution represents.
There are many ways to get involved in the campaign:
The best way is to organize together with others in your community. Visit the SOA Watch webpage to find out if there is already a local group in your area. If not, consider starting one. Here is an excellent article on local group organizing that includes information on possible actions to take and provides lots of good background information on how to organize effectively: www.SOAW.org/organizing
Also visit the Legislative Action Index , the information about Nonviolent Direct Action and the lisiting of SOA Watch Working Groups on the SOA Watch webpage.
Getting the word out about the SOA and the reality of U.S. foreign policy is an important part to win new people to join the movement and to take action. You can use ¡Presente! as a resource to do that by becoming an Activist Distributor . Order a box with 150 copies of ¡Presente! and include a flier or a sticker with information on how people can contact you in order to connect with like-minded people.
