SOA Watch presents its new documentary “Somos Una America”. Written and edited by Gabriela Uassouf (young activists in SOAW Latin America), it will be screened at the SOA Watch Vigil at the gates of Fort Benning, GA, this November.

The School of the Americas changed its name (now Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation) but continues to operate with the same instructors, in the same place, and with the same mission that it has always had: Training Latin American military to repress their own people in favor of U.S. economic and military interests. Today, new forms of military intervention add up to the SOA training: US/UN troops for “humanitarian aid”, military presence and training in Latin American territory, and US military bases and facilities. But the organizing and unity of the peoples of the Americas, from Patagonia to Canada, are making the winds of change blow. More and more initiatives grow every day from all corners of this continent to say “No!” to militarization, and to create a culture of peace.
