On January 24, a Witness for Peace Southwest delegation protested outside of Fort MacArthur, a former U.S. military air force base in San Pedro, California.
The action came one day after WfPSW’s 2016 opening event, Latin America 2016: People’ Power and Popular Democracies in the Face of US Imperialism.
Here are some pics documenting the night’s events:
Regional Organizer Jeanette Charles spoke about the current conditions in Honduras and the WfP Midwest delegation to Honduras this February focusing on women’s leadership and organizing.
More than 50 people came out to listen to first hand testimony about Mexico’s struggle against impunity.
Regional Board Member Rachel Brunhke MC’ed the night’s events and spoke about the status of Cuba and U.S. diplomatic relations.
Dozens participated in our silent auction featuring a wide variety of books and merchandise from and about Latin America and the Caribbean.
Students from across San Pedro came out to learn more about the revolutionary movement in Venezuela.
Please keep posted for upcoming events, actions and delegations.
In peace and solidarity,
On behalf of Witness for Peace Southwest
