MILITARIZATION AND ALTERNATIVE

Understanding the realities on the ground is essential for every Solidarity Collective delegate. That’s why we give you a chance to hear expert analysis from leading human, environmental, and political rights organizations.

 

Community leaders, lawyers, researchers, and analysts provide unparalleled insight into the situation facing the region. Meet with organizations that are directly engaging in changing the status quo, from mutual aid, to sustainable farming, to mass mobilization, and beyond.

Your delegation will likely include some of the following organizations:

  • Movimiento Amplio por la Dignidad y la Justicia (Honduras)

  • Consejo Cívico de Organizaciones Populares e Indígenas de Honduras (Honduras)

  • Organizacion Fraternal Negra Hondurena (Honduras)

  • Comision Inter-eclesial de Justicia y Paz (Colombia)

  • Proceso de Unidad Popular del Suroccidente Colombiano (Colombia)

  • Centro Martin Luther King Jr (Cuba)

  • Fundacion Guagua (Colombia)

"It is important to think about development. The current model of development is putting human beings in danger. Perhaps some of you feel that the fight it is far from here. It is not. The planet we have is only one. We need to connect our voices of the south and north to protect our planet."

 

Miriam Miranda, OFRANEH Honduras

When you join a Solidarity Collective delegation, you meet Indigenous, African-descendant and Campesino peace-builders, learn from community leaders, investigate current topics, and experience the realities and impacts of U.S. foreign policies and corporate practices.

Each Solidarity Collective delegation itinerary is unique; however, many topics are regular features. However, most of the itinerary of every trip relates directly to the delegation theme; the rest is made up of meetings on a range of engaging and intersectional issues.
