This alert was originally shared by SOA Watch.
The New Year in Washington D.C.’s halls of power has so far been anything but new. President Obama extols the virtues of militarizing the border, plays with the threat of war with Iran and boasts of continued US military presence around the world. War and military interference continue to be a bi-partisan policy.
Join us in Washington, DC for the Days of Action to Close the SOA and End Militarization!
Plan to come to DC from April 14-17 for four days of lobbying, conferences, strategy sessions, concerts and street theater, as we continue to make our demands heard for a just world. Prior to the Days of Action, we will hold a Direct Action Training camp from April 11-13 to train movement activists in the skills needed to carry out effective actions to put the SOA and militarization on the national agenda.
