I feel obligated to point out that it's corporate profit motive that's driving brutality in Latin America and repression of immigrants in the U.S.  The directive to maintain the SOA comes from the corner offices of Wall Street, not from Fort Benning.  As long as companies have their screws in our government and can get our politicians and generals to think that "certain regions" need to be "secured" for "the good of the economy", America will keep on using its resources to train death squads, fund drug cartels, and murder anyone who tries to stand up for the rights of the people.

So I would love to suggest that people really bring the message that the Army and ICE are all just stooges for making Citibank and Goldman Sachs richer.  They're doing the work that drives immigrants from their homes, and that keeps them as an underclass of cheap, exploitable labor when they come here in search of opportunity.  Wall Street owns our military.  Wall Street owns our borders.  Wall Street owns the whole darn government.

Solidarity,

Jon
