PRESENTE ! THE NEW WEBSITE OF THE NEWSPAPER OF THE MOVEMENT TO CLOSE THE SOA:
Following on their recent highly successful protest at the Fort Benning headquarters of the 'School of the Americas' the School of the Americas Watch has decided to put their newspaper Presente ! online. About 25,000 people attended the vigil and direct actions held last November 15th to 18th. Eleven activists were arrested for penetrating the military base while three others face charges because they refused to relinquish crosses that city officials said violated their size regulations (I'm not kidding-Molly). Simultaneous protests took place in Santiago, Chile, Fort Huachuca, Arizona, Monterery, California and Toronto, Ontario. Three people were arrested for attempting to invade the Fort Huachuca military base. This is the home of the U.S. Army intelligence and a school for interrogation.
The new website for their newspaper contains news on these and other actions that SOAW has undertaken and will undertake in the future. Also videos of the various actions. Look there to keep informed.
