(en) US, Anti-Authoritarian People of Color caucus at the School of the Americas (SOA)

Date Sat, 03 Nov 2007 11:09:47 +0200


From November 16-18, 2007, thousands will converge at Fort Benning, Georgia. The Fort Benning-based School of the Americas, renamed in 2001 to Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation (SOA/WHINSEC) gained global notoriety for its training of Latin American death squad leaders and military dictators. Thousands throughout the Americas have been tortured and murdered by graduates of the SOA/WHINSEC. Graduates of the school continue to be cited for humyn rights abuses. This November, we will take a stand for justice, to close the School of the Americas (SOA/WHINSEC) and change the racist system of violence and domination that institutions like the SOA/WHINSEC represent. Amazing musicians, grassroots activists and social movement leaders from throughout the Americas will come together at the gates of Fort Benning, Georgia. Join the movement!

APOC, LET'S SHUT DOWN THE SOA!

Tentative agenda proposal:

- Our role as anti-authoritarian people of color in shutting down the School of the Americas (SOA/WHINSEC)

- Building towards stronger and more serious solidarity with South and Central America and the Caribbean

- Begin networking and organizing for an anti-authoritarian people of color conference for the coming year

(People of Color refers to those that do NOT identify as white-skinned or Caucasian. People of Color can include, but is not limited to African, South American, Central American, American Indian, Caribbean, Southeastern Asian, Arab, Mediterranean, and Indigenous Australian descent.)

*** Please Foward Widely ***

There will also be an Anti-Authoritarian caucus at the convergence to shut down the School of the Americas (SOA/WHINSEC).
