Join Georgia Detention Watch in the call to shut down Stewart Detention Center! The #ShutDownStewart Coalition is honored to have the support of SOA Watch again this year, drawing the connecting between US militarization in Latin America and immigrant detention/deportation in the U.S.!  We are also calling on creative energy within the movement to engage in non-violent direct action as we call for the closure of the School of the Americas and Stewart Detention Center. The vigil will begin with speakers and musicians at the Lumpkin town square.  After a 1.7 mile procession, the vigil will conclude with directly impacted voices and musicians at the gate of Corrections Corporation of America's Stewart Detention Center, named one of the 10 worst immigration detention centers in the United States.
