We're Still Here.

'Photos won't download and it is late but we are in Columbus, Georgia with thousands of other social activists who want, from the depth of our beings, to have a world without racist, oppressive US military polices that sacrifice human rights and dignity in the name of economic and security interests. When we came here it was like coming home. Not because Fort Benning and it's surroundings are so homey but because of the people who converged here to attempt to shut down the notorious School of the Americas (now WHINSEC.) It's a long road many of us have travelled since the Civil Rights movement and the war in Vietnam and all the wars and environmental and social justice movements since but it is like a quality in the blood, this life long quest for a just and sustaining world.
I'll report on it tomorrow with photos. Peace to you.
