Manage Events

In February, 2009, the Southwestern College District Governing Board approved a Memorandum of Understanding with Blackwater Lodge and Training Center (now Xe Services, LLC) to allow the college to use the shooting range in Blackwater's Otay Mesa training facility in trade for the use of campus conference rooms on an unlimited basis (apparently for on-campus mercenary recruiting) and with compensation for cost of the running the range. The Board also agreed to a "gag-order" which restricted their ability to speak to the public without the prior written approval of Blackwater. At the March 11, 2009 meeting, the board voted 4-1 to renegotiate the agreement but to continue to send students to the Blackwater-run shooting range. At the May meeting, the Board agreed to eliminate most questionable provisions but students are still attending classes in the Blackwater-Xe facility.

Join us to protest the agreement with Blackwater-Xe, still providing that students would go to the Blackwater facility and be immersed in pro-Blackwater messages. This is no freebie, but a way for Blackwater to recruit for their own private paramilitary organization and purify their tarnished public image. See BlackwaterInSouthwesternCollege for more information.
