Soaw Delegation To Mexico June 2015

From June 21 to July 1, 2015, a SOA Watch delegation will travel to Mexico to explore firsthand the impacts of Plan Merida and the US financing of the Mexican security forces. 

We will meet with family members of victims of state violence, organizations working for justice and human rights, journalists tracking military human rights abuses, and social movements seeking to create alternatives and dignity in the face of intense repression. 

 We will also look at the underlying US interests in in Mexico as well as communities organizing to defend their land and natural resources. Click here for more on the delegation.
