SOA Watch Encuentro at the Border

Oct.7-11: Converge on the US/Mexico Border

War Resisters League is endorsing the SOA Watch Convergence at the Border and we encourage you to join the October 7-11 vigils, protests and workshops at the Eloy Detention Center, in Tucson, and in Nogales, Arizona/ Sonora at the border wall. Visit the convergence webpage for more information:

It is important that we have a strong showing of activists from throughout the U.S. and Mexico in the lead-up to the November elections. We are going to take a stand for justice and demand fundamental change in US policies that goes beyond elections. Come out and amplify the demands of the convergence:

     * An end to the destructive U.S. military, economic, and political interventions in the Americas.
     * De-militarization of the borders. We need to build bridges with our neighbors, not walls.
     * The dismantling of the racist and sexist systems that steal from, criminalize, and kill migrants, refugees, natives, gender non-conforming people, communities of color, and others throughout the hemisphere.
     * Respect, dignity, justice and self-determination for all communities, especially the poor and most vulnerable
     * No more profits over people! Private military, prison, oil, mining, and other corporations should not determine our future or that of the earth, the people should.
