Donations are requested on a sliding scale to support members of SOA Watch Oregon as they travel to the School of Americas (SOA) at Ft. Benning, GA, for the vigil this November.
The SOA, funded and operated by US tax dollars, trains Latin American soldiers in counterinsurgency techniques that target civilian populations. Graduates of the school have been responsible for the torture, murder and disappearance of thousands of civilians.
Much information about the School of the Americas has been posted at Portland IndyMedia, especially excellent coverage of Chani Geigle-Teller's prison witness for her participation in the demonstration last year.
For more information about the school, please visit SOA Watch's website: http://www.soaw.org/
