(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!


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).
