      About SOA Watch - www.soaw.org

      SOA Watch is an independent organization that seeks to
      close the US Army School the Americas, under whatever
      name it is called, through vigils & fasts,
      demonstrations & nonviolent protest, as well as media
      and legislative work.

      On November 16, 1989, six Jesuit priests, their
      co-worker and her teenage daughter were massacred in
      El Salvador.

      A U.S. Congressional Task Force reported that those
      responsible were trained at the U.S. Army School of
      the Americas (SOA) at Ft. Benning, Georgia.

      In 1990 SOA Watch began in a tiny apartment outside
      the main gate of Ft. Benning. While starting with a
      small group, SOA Watch quickly drew upon the knowledge
      and experience of many in the U.S. who had worked with
      the people of Latin America in the 1970's and 80's.

      Today, the SOA Watch movement is a large, diverse,
      grassroots movement rooted in solidarity with the
      people of Latin America. The goal of SOA Watch is to
      close the SOA and to change U.S. foreign policy in
      Latin America by educating the public, lobbying
      Congress and participating in creative, nonviolent
      resistance. The Pentagon has responded to the growing
      movement and Congress' near closure of the SOA with a
      PR campaign to give the SOA a new image. In an attempt
      to disassociate the school with its horrific past, the
      SOA was renamed the Western Hemisphere Institute for
      Security Cooperation in January of 2001.

      Read more about the history of the SOA Watch movement.

      Mission Statement

      SOA Watch is a nonviolent grassroots movement that
      works to stand in solidarity with the people of Latin
      America, to close the SOA/WHINSEC and to change
      oppressive U.S. foreign policy that the SOA
      represents. We are grateful to our sisters and
      brothers throughout Latin America for their
      inspiration and the invitation to join them in their
      struggle for economic and social justice.
