      March 27-30, 2004: SOA Watch Spring Mobilization and Lobby Day

      Come to Washington, DC on March 30, 2004 and tell Congress to "Shut Down the
      SOA! - No More Murder in Our Name and with Our Tax Money!"

      The School of the Americas (SOA), now known as the "Western Hemisphere
      Institute for Security Cooperation" (WHISC), has been pumping out assassins,
      dictators and death squad leaders for the dirty work in Latin America since
      1946 -- and is still at it.

      The school continues to aide and influence Latin American militaries as a
      way for the Pentagon to control the economic and political systems of Latin
      America. Human rights abuses and attacks carried out by SOA graduates
      continue today, especially as opposition to neo-liberal economic policies by
      Latin America's marginalized people grows.

      The Pentagon lobbies hard to keep money flowing for the SOA/WHISC. In
      reacting to the growing public outcry, the Army operates (at taxpayers'
      expense) a huge PR campaign that is directed at Congress. People throughout
      the country are countering their attempts with grassroots power. The SOA
      Watch movement is preparing for a large-scale Lobby Day in DC on March 30th.

      A vote on the School of the Americas/ Western Hemisphere Institute for
      Security Cooperation is coming up in the U.S. Congress in 2004! It is our
      job to make sure that enough Representatives will be on board to vote
      against the school. Hold your Representative accountable. Make plans to
      come to Washington, DC and organize others to join you.

      The SOA Watch Spring Mobilization will also include trainings, film
      screenings, street theatre, nonviolent direct action, and social and
      educational events. Visit www.SOAW.org for more information.

      Come to Washington, DC for the SOA Watch Spring Mobilization from March
      27-30, 2004 to continue the struggle! Call the SOA Watch office in
      Washington, DC at (202) 234 3440 to receive an Organizing Packet.
