A chapter of School of the Americas Watch is starting
in Santa Cruz.

SOA Watch is a nonviolent grassroots movement that
works to stand in solidarity with the people of Latin
America and the Caribbean, to close the SOA/WHINSEC
and to change oppressive U.S. foreign policy that the
SOA represents.

Possible activities of the group:
Organizing a trip to Fort Benning for November. This
is an annual protest that often attracts tens of
thousands of people, and which entails non-violent
direct action against US foreign policy.

Organizing a Santa Cruz film screening to inform
people about School of the Americas.

Beginning a study and research group on the activities
of School of the Americas, along with broader
questions about US foreign policy in Latin America.

Organizing fundraising events to fund the trip to Fort
Benning as well as to support SOA activities in Latin
America.

The first meeting is Sunday June 22, 1pm at Cafe
Pergolesi.
