SOA Day One

The puppetistas created an amazing analogy. Grey flying creatures invaded the corn people's lives... but first to know the sweet humanity of the puppet people.
And the drums and generations and spirit of "el pueblo" reverberated throughout the afternoon.
(Speakers and musicians throughout the day giving encouragement to Shut Down the School of Assassins. Last year in Congress the Bill, now HR 1701, which would suspend operations and conduct a full investigation into Dept. of Defense training in Latin America, lost by only 6 votes!)
As the legacy of the murderous US taxpayer paid helicopters was illustrated by the puppet helicopter look into the sky for one of the helicopters that buzzed us in attempts to intimidate us, above the sinister bird that shadowed us and here appears to be peering skywards.
And when the tides turned it was with the giant face and outstretched arms of Rufina Amaya, the sole survivor of the El Mozote massacre (a community of 800 people who were slaughtered by SOA graduates in El Salvador) who died this last year and was revered. Some of this crowd has come together at the Fort Benning gates for 18 years in their steadfast efforts to shut down the school. We can do it THIS YEAR.
We hope you will find time to call Congress 1-202-224-3121, ask for your representative and ask that they close and expose the terrorism trained into the graduates of the SOA.
