The salary of Pablo, our Latin American Coordinator in Chile. Pablo is a torture survivor of the Pinochet regime in Chile. He helps connect the SOAW movement with those throughout the Americas who are building a culture of peace in the face of rising violence and US military involvement. This upcoming year, Pablo will connect youth in Latin America and North America who are working to find new doors to peace. As a journalist, he will continue to connect his skills with radio, audio-visuals and the written word to strengthen the SOAW movement in the South.
Support an SOAW Activante (or "intern") in Latin America. Young people have shown our movement the necessity of working from both sides of the border to confront militarization. In Honduras, activantes help to accompany human rights leaders whose lives are threatened after an SOA-led coup. In Chile activantes connect the SOAW movement with the brave and vibrant Chilean student movement that is putting Pinochet's privitization model on trial.
Our biannual newsletter ¡Presente! is the most widely read English-language publication on Latin America Solidarity issues. 35,000 - 100,000 copies of each issue of ¡Presente! are printed and distributed to communities in every single state in the United States.
SOAW Organizers will continue to connect with youth in high schools and colleges across the country through educational speaking tours.
