No Military Bases  

Wednesday, March 7, 2007


The three days in Quito are filled with meetings. We are divided into two tracks. One track is a series of workshops geared toward organizing a new anti-base coalition. The second track includes self-organized events over a wide range of topics related to militarization and the presence of military bases. These included struggles against military bases in places such as Vieques, Hawaii, and the Philippines. Other presentations were more thematic, such as discussions of the environmental impacts of bases, Plan Colombia, and efforts to close the School of the Americas. A series of film screenings on struggles against military bases and broader peace issues also runs throughout the event. Thursday morning we will join a women’s caravan for peace to Manta where the U.S. has a Forward Operating Location (FOL) base.
