SOA Watch, 2nd binational convergence on US-Mexico border Nov. 10-12, 2017

SOA Watch – an organization close to Witness for Peace’s heart and mission – will be having its second binational convergence on the U.S. – Mexico border this November 10th through 12th. Join them in Nogales, Arizona and Nogales, Sonora to call for an end to border militarization, to say no to U.S. intervention in Latin America, and to challenge the racist status quo in the U.S. This mobilization is also a chance to demand the closure of the School of the Americas/WHINSEC.

Join human rights activists, torture survivors, union workers, veterans, community organizers, migrants, faith communities, students, educators and more from across the Americas. Witness for Peace will have a presence there, and we very much look forward to seeing you.

There will be more information coming out about this important event in the coming weeks. You can get updates on this event at their SOA Watch Convergence website.

See you at the border!

In solidarity,

Witness for Peace

CANCELED*July 10th event*CANCELED!

The Cuba Friendshipment truck will arrive this weekend and will pick up
the materials that people have kindly donated.  (Also, $2,000 worth
of medicine purchased by ROCLA.)

We had planned to have a major event as a sendoff for the truck,
but then the date for the truck’s arrival was changed, and changed
again.  So the truck will arrive, and will load, and will leave, but

The ROCLA Steering Committee apologizes for announcing an
event, and then canceling it, but it just didn’t make sense to have
a non-event.

In 2015, we hope to have the truck and the event at the same
place at the same time!

In solidarity,

Arnie Matlin for ROCLA SC

P.S. People have only donated about $750 so far to pay for
medicines that we have already purchased.
We count on your donation to allow us to send these
lifesaving meds to the people of Cuba.  If you haven’t
yet donated, please send your (tax-deductible) check to:

Kathy Goforth, 45 Lynbrook Drive, Rochester, NY 14609.

Make check out to MJ-ROCLA with notation “Friendshipment.”
