Demonstration Against the School of Americas (recently renamed Western Hemisphere Institute For Security Cooperation).
Also known as “School of Assassins” its graduates have been involved in many human rights abuses of Latin American civilians up to the killing of people. This institution is run by the U.S. Army and teaches Latin American soldiers who have been involved in human rights violations against the people of their own countries. Some of the people who have become victims of graduates of the SOA are human rights workers, labor organizers, religious people and even children.
The South Country Peace Group and the St. Joseph The Worker Pax Christi Group have organized a local demonstration to Long Island to show solidarity with demonstrators at Fort Benning and elsewhere around the country.
Saturday, November 22 1:00-2:30 PM.
In front of the office of Rep. King – 1003 Park Blvd, Massapequa Park
(turn north onto Park Blvd from Sunrise H. There is an IHOP on south side of Sunrise at that corner, Peter King’s office is next to the Post Office)
It is also possible to walk to the office from the local LIRR station.
Organized by the South Country Peace Group & the St Joseph the Worker Pax Christi Group.
