This November, we will be gathering at the gates of Fort Benning in remembrance of those who have lost their lives to SOA/WHINSEC violence, and in resistance to the continued militarization of Latin America. As many of you prepare to attend the vigil, know that the SOA Watch staff is also hard at work to ensure that this year's vigil will be our most inclusive, bringing activists from across the country and around the world to Fort Benning.

Report from Ecuador - Democracy under Threat PDF Print E-mail

Coup Attempt in EcuadorSOA Watch has been monitoring the failed coup attempt in Ecuador. We continue to call for the end of the training of military and police personnel at the U.S. School of the Americas, International Law Enforcement Agencies (ILEA) or other institutions that promote anti-democratic behavior. We congratulate the social movements of Ecuador for impeding any possible coup.

On Thursday morning, a large number of media reported that the Ecuadoran military had seized the main airport in Quito and that the police fired tear gas, burned tires "after taking over bases in Quito, Guayaquil and other cities." They also claim that an Associated Press photographer "witnessed soldiers participating in the action that shut down the main terminal at Quito's Mariscal Sucre airport." On the other hand, TeleSur reported that the police had indeed launched a possible coup attempt but that the response by the military was unknown.

News from Ecuador kept pouring in as the events unfolded throughout the day. After President Correa was held hostage in a hospital by the police for 10 hours, Ecuadoran military forces moved in and freed the President and returned him to the Presidential palace.

Stop FBI RaidsTake Action by contacting the Department of Justice HERE


SOA Watch stands in solidarity with the anti-war and international activists whose homes were raided by the FBI. On Friday, September 24, 2010 the FBI raided seven houses and an office in Chicago and Minneapolis in an attempt to collect evidence of 'material support' of terrorism.  The FBI also handed subpoenas to testify before a federal grand jury to eleven activists in Illinois, Minnesota, and Michigan. These raids were aimed at those who dedicate their time and energy to supporting the struggles of the Palestinian and Colombian peoples against U.S. funded occupation and war.
