My daughters and I will be returning for our third year to protest the US military school that teaches torture to world dictatorships, and to remember the 70,000 victims as part of the !Presente! funeral procession and die in on Sunday.

We are travelling again with high school students from Roman Catholic and Mennonite schools in the Kitchener Waterloo area. The trip costs just under $200 including bus transportation, shared motel rooms and most meals per person. The trip is family and teen friendly. Please consider coming with us!

From the SOA-led massacre at the University of Central America 23 years ago
to the 2009 SOA-led coup in Honduras...
WE RESIST!

November 16 marks the anniversary of the assassination of 14-year-old Celina Ramos, her mother and six Jesuit priests in El Salvador in 1989. Nineteen of the twenty-six Salvadoran army officers cited by a UN Truth Commission as responsiblefor this atrocity were trained at the School of the Americas (SOA). Since 1990, people have gathered at the gates of Fort Benning, home of the SOA, to memorialize these eight people and all those who have died at the hands of soldiers trained at this school. The day is also a call to take action in opposition to this military training as well as denounce the racism, repression and failed policy it represents.

This electoral year, it is more important than ever to mobilize for justice in the Americas. We have seen that no matter who wins the race to the White House, power cedes nothing without a demand. The November Vigil will occur two weeks after the Presidential election, and our presence at the gates of Fort Benning will serve as a reminder to the winner that we will not stop.

Join the SOA Watch movement at the gates of Fort Benning in Columbus, Georgia, this November 16-18, as we continue to speak truth to power and demand a real change in US foreign policy!
