SOA Watch Action Alert 
April 11, 2006  
29 SOA Watch activists report to federal prisons today 
Those Headed to Prison, including 81-year-old WWII Veteran, Will Serve Time 
for Opposition to School of the Americas 
Take action in support! <#action> 
Twenty nine SOA Watch human rights advocates from around the United States 
will report to federal prisons today to begin serving sentences of one to 
six months for their acts of nonviolent civil disobedience opposing the 
controversial U.S. Army's School of the Americas (SOA/ WHINSEC). The 29 - 
ranging in age from 19 to 81 - are among 37 people arrested at Fort Benning 
last November and later sentenced in a federal court. They join four others 
already serving prison time for the same action. 
"People speaking out for justice and accountability go to prison this week," 
said Fr. Roy Bourgeois, founder of SOA Watch, "while the SOA and its 
graduates continue to commit human rights abuses with impunity." 
The exciting news from Argentina and Uruguay last month 
1384553&u=657934>  harsh prison sentences handed down to those arrested last 
November come at a critical time and give momentum to the campaign to close 
the SOA/ WHINSEC. A Congressional vote 
1384553&u=657935>  on the SOA will happen as early as May! 
Thanks to your hard work, the legislation introduced last year by Rep. 
McGovern (D-MA) that would suspend activities at the SOA/ WHINSEC and call 
for a review of foreign military training in Latin America, HR 1217, 
currently has 128 bi-partisan co-sponsors! 
Last November 19,000 people - many of you among them - gathered at the gates 
of Ft. Benning, home of the SOA/ WHINSEC, to call for the closure of the 
school. The annual Vigil has grown from a dozen people in November of 1990 
to last year's record numbers. The gathering culminated in a symbolic 
funeral procession commemorating those who have died at the hands of 
graduates of the school. The 29 reporting to prison today - including Delmar 
Schwaller, an 81-year-old World War II veteran - peacefully crossed onto the 
Fort Benning military base and were arrested. Read a final list of 
defendants and their sentences 
1384553&u=657936> . 
Take action today to support these prisoners and to continue their work of 
closing the School of the Americas! 
1. Come to Washington, DC to tell Congress to close the SOA: April 23-25, 
The tide is turning in the Americas! All across Central and South America, 
governments and citizens are rejecting SOA-style military "solutions" to 
social problems - here in the United States, hundreds of thousands of 
immigrants and allies have been mobilizing for a more just world - and in 
the halls of Congress the message to close the SOA is louder than ever. 
DAY. Add *your* voice to this movement for justice! March, rally and lobby 
to close the SOA in Washington, DC April 23-25! Now is the time to take our 
message to Capitol Hill. 
Join us in DC from April 23-25 as we tell Congress to close the School of 
the Americas once and for all! Let's ride this tide and flood the halls of 
Congress with justice. 
On SUNDAY, April 23, we'll gather for a day of legislative trainings, 
workshops and a talk from Father Roy. On MONDAY, April 24, we'll process to 
Capitol Hill, hold a brief rally and meet with Members of Congress. We'll 
continue to hold Congressional meetings on TUESDAY, April 25.

3. Support SOA Watch 
Organizing work costs money! Please donate to SOA Watch 
1384553&u=657948> . 
History is made by movements - mass movements of people who organize 
themselves to struggle collectively for a better world. The movement to 
close the School of the Americas/WHINSEC is a nonviolent force to change 
oppressive US foreign policy as represented by institutions like the 
SOA/WHINSEC. It is made up of people from many backgrounds and represents a 
positive and fundamentally different alternative to the system of violence 
and oppression. 
See you in Washington, DC!
