Somos Una América:
Shut Down the SOA!

Resist Militarization and Promote a Culture of Justice and Peace
Resistiendo el Militarismo y Promoviendo una Cultura de Paz

Study Packet/Guide for showing SOMOS UNA AMERICA in your community!

An exciting new documentary film will be released in October 2011. Somos Una América is the story of people from across the Americas, who are united in their struggle against the Pentagon mindset that is promoting U.S. domination and Somos Una América"military solutions" in the Western Hemisphere.

Starting out with the background on the School of the Americas and the campaign to shut it down, Somos Una América moves further: the film puts a spotlight on U.S. militarization and features the voices of a rising hemisphere-wide anti-militarization movement that is connecting grassroots activists from across borders as it creates a culture of justice and peace.

Fast-paced and energetic, Somos Una América brings together images from protest actions against U.S. bases in Colombia, from the Encuentro of the Americas in Venezuela and from the April 2011 direct action at the White House in DC. It also includes footage of the 2009 SOA graduate-led coup in Honduras and the 2002 coup attempt in Venezuela, and interviews with activists in the front-lines of the resistance. Filmed and edited by Argentine filmmaker Gabriela Uassouf over the course of the past year, Somos Una América offers a hopeful outlook and illustrates the power of the people as we work together to build a new world.

Besides the 25 minute bilingual documentary film, the DVD also features more than one hour of exellent bonus material, including Tom Bottolene's documentary ¡NO MAS! The 20th Annual Sunday Vigil and Tomas Laffay's 14 minute film Today was a victory / Hoy Fue Una Victoria, which focuses on the November Vigil as a rallying point and a place to network for many grassroots organizations struggling for social justice in our Americas.
