"SOA has trained over 64,000 Latin American soldiers in counterinsurgency techniques, sniper training, commando and psychological warfare, military intelligence and interrogation tactics. Hundreds of thousands of Latin Americans have been tortured, raped, assassinated, “disappeared,” massacred, and forced into refugee status by those trained at the School of Assassins." www.soa.org.

@Sandy you are right, most people don't know- others don't want to know it is even more reason why those that do know even a little must spread the word.

Do you know how to set up a fundraising campaign here in causes? I can show you if you want. Call me at the GHRC office if you're interested.

This "school" is reputed to be a facility for training police and military members of Latin American countries to repress movements for justice and democracy. It should be closed.

As a US citizen, I want my government to stop contributing to the militarization of the LAC region, and violating the human rights of people there!

Hay que acabar con este nido de violencia imperialista. Es tiempo de iniciar una cultura politica basada en el respeto por la dignidad de los ciudadanos y de las cuidadanas.

The US must show more respect in the way that it interacts with other countries.

SOA Watch has been a witness to the systematic link between training for torture and repression in the backyard of imperialism: Latin America. Ft Benning--because of the work of SOA Watch and the 100's to 1000's each year---has been exposed as a training ground: terrorist servants of empire: trained in the USA. Thank God for SOA Watch and please support their continuing work.
