SOA Watch Border Encuentro

Posted on 01. Oct, 2017 by in Immigration

From SOA Watch:

From November 10-12, after 26 years of protest at the gates of Ft. Benning to call for a closure of the notorious School of the Americas (renamed the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation – WHINSEC), human rights activists, torture survivors, anti-war veterans, students, families, union workers, artists and educators will converge in Eloy-Tucson-Ambos Nogales for the SOA Watch Border EncuentroRegister HERE!


We are excited to announce just a few of the confirmed speakers and performers who will join us at the US/Mexico border to challenge US imperialism and racism. As a grassroots movement, we seek to uplift the voices of those most directly impacted by state violence and to inspire resistance to the racist US policies forcing migration and threatening our migrant and immigrant communities.


For this year’s Encuentro, we are working to ensure that activists and artists from across the Americas join us on stage and in forums. Help us honor and recognize their work to share stories, transform trauma, and nourish resistance by making a donation to support their participation in the 2017 Border Encuentro!
