Nico Udu-gama, Organizer for School of the Americas (SOA) Watch, will speak about his experience in Colombia. Nico has written: "I worked with people in farmer communities who were being systematically tortured, disappeared, displaced and massacred so that, at the end of the day, big businesses could thrive. I witnessed with my own eyes how the SOA has been a key pillar of U.S. intervention and destabilization in Latin America. Now, with U.S. capitalism in crisis, we're seeing a final effort to contain popular resistance at home and abroad. But alternatives are emerging, and the resistance is growing -- from immigrant rights to prison abolition to resistance against the coup in Honduras and the U.N occupation in Haiti. We are the change from below."
