|From Bases in Colombia to Detention Centers in Georgia, End US Militarization Now!|
SOA Watch calls for justice for all immigrants including those held inhumanely and without due process at the Stewart Detention Center, an isolated, for-profit facility. We contend that many immigrants to the United States, particularly those from Latin American, are victims of U.S.-sponsored military training and other atrocious policies around issues like trade and immigration. In our fight to close the SOA, we continue to work towards a world that is free of domination and violence. We recognize the existence of SOA/WHINSEC and our unjust immigration policies as being parts of the same racist system of oppression. SOA Watch allies itself with those most affected by U.S.-backed violence in an effort to create a just world.
Stewart Detention Center Vigil IV: No one is Illegal - Justice for Immigrants
Located in rural Lumpkin, Georgia, this detention center has become a focal point for human rights organizations, including Georgia Detention Watch, the ACLU of Georgia, Amnesty International, and School of the Americas Watch (SOA Watch). The upcoming vigil will be held Friday, November 19th at 10 AM outside the detention center in Lumpkin, Georgia (only 45 miles outside Columbus, Georgia). This event coincides with the annual vigil to close the School of the Americas, November 19th-21st. We invite you to make plans to join us for this important event.
