This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Jesuit massacre in El Salvador.
In spite of US efforts, the Salvadoran government is today led by a former FMLN guerilla fighter, and the country is shifting away from iron fist policies, toward participation- based community models for violence prevention and law enforcement. However, US-supported political repression not a thing of the past, but a grim reality today in Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala and in many other places. The School of the Americas continues to train repressive militaries, now under the name of Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation. The repression continues so the Resistance can't stop. Join us from November 21-23, 2014 at the gates of Fort Benning, Georgia to speak out against empire and militarization. Be part of creating a new culture of justice. Stand up for dignity, and self-determination.
During this 25th annual November Vigil, we will emphasize on the connections between the past and the present by focusing on the ways in which the SOA violence of today continues to be just as real and destructive as it was when the school was first created in 1946. Events in countries like Honduras, Colombia and Mexico are perfect examples of that and we will focus our attention on the parallels between the repression of popular movements in Latin America and the criminalization of communities of color and social movements in the United States. Also, we seek to expose SOA violence, in conjununction with U.S. foreign policy and free trade agreements, as major factors for understanding the root causes of migration from Latin America to the U.S.
