There is so much to tell it’s hard to know where to start. The good news is that five Latin American countries are now officially School of the Americas “dropouts” (they will not be sending any more of their military to the SOA for training). The bad news: It’s still open and operating. But it’s getting closer and closer to closing down. Only about 6 more U.S. representatives are needed to vote to close it.
My experience is best told through photos and videos. I have posted videos at
Green Party Peace Network.
You can also view my videos at Youtube – search for “deesdotes”.
Photos Tom and I took can be viewed at the SOAW page of the Green Party Peace Network.
Here are a few things for “taste” of what I experienced:
Father Roy Bourgeois, Founder of the SOA Watch
Looks like a pretty good crowd-excellent!
It is estimated that 25,000 people were there!
