Ferguson, October 11-13: Weekend Of Resistance
We are in a movement moment.
Droves of people, many of them young and black, took to the streets of Ferguson to demand justice for Mike Brown. Millions stood in solidarity as protestors were met by a brutal and militarized response by local police departments.
Our country can no longer deny the epidemic of police violence facing Black and Brown communities. Mike Brown is now part of a long list of people like John Crawford, Ezell Ford, Eric Garner, Oscar Grant and countless others who have been unjustly killed by police. Their lives mattered.
Join Hands Up United, Organization for Black Struggle, Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment and our partners in Ferguson from October 10-13 for a weekend of resistance. We’re hosting a series of public events—marches, convenings and panels— to build momentum for a nationwide movement against police violence.
We will gather in Ferguson, but the world will hear our call for change.
Milwaukee, September 25: MARIA LUISA ROSAL “From the Border to the Base” Connecting the dots between Immigration and the SOA
*7 pm, Thursday, Sept.25. UW-Milwaukee Bolton Hall, room B95*
Born in Guatemala during the worst of the internal armed conflict, Maria Luisa Rosal’s father was disappeared by the Guatemalan government. Afterwards, Rosal fled to the United States and received political asylum. A leading voice for human rights and peace, she works to end torture and violence across the hemisphere. Knowledgeable about grassroots movements, she holds an M.A. in Human Rights and Democratization in Latin America and the Caribbean from the Universidad Nacional de San Martin. Currently she is a Field Organizer for the School of the Americas Watch in Washington, DC.

The School of the Americas/WHINSEC has been an important factor when looking at the past AND current wave of migration to the United States.
