Somos Una America Organizing Packet Print

A note from the producer:

"From south of the South, in Buenos Aires, Argentina, I appreciate your support and struggle to close the SOA and to end imperial militarization. This struggle is for all those that desire another form of understanding us [South America] as a continent, as humanity, as people. And to construct new ways of understanding ourselves as A Single America, we need creativity and imagination working en tandem, in the service of the Culture of Peace that we wish to consolidate. This documentary is just that: a creative collective effort, like all the protests, research, delegations, Encuentros, communications, workshops, bulletins, videos and songs that, from all of our humble hearts, that spring forth to unite us in a single struggle from the North Pole to Patagonia. We Are One America!" - Gabriela Uassouf
