Witness Weekend to End Torture

2009-11-13 - Issues and Mobilization, Ward Churchill and Ophilia Rivas - Tucson , Arizona, Ft. Hauchuca

SAY NO TO TORTURE Save the dates… plan to join us! Ft. Huachuca is the home of USAICS, the U.S. Army Intelligence Center and School, and has a long history of complicity in U.S. crimes of torture. The torture manuals used at the School of the Americas came from Ft. Huachuca. For several years, in solidarity with the SOA Watch annual vigil and action at Fort Benning, Georgia to close the U.S. Army’s School of the Americas (now the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation) there has been a growing grassroots demonstration at the gate of Fort Huachuca to protest our country’s slipping standards on torture, being practiced in our name and with our tax dollars in places like Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo. The November 2009 demonstration at Ft. Huachuca will take place the week before the Ft. Benning vigil and action. All of these events are sponsored by Southwest Witness, Tucson SOA Watch, and Torture on Trial in solidarity with SOA Watch and their annual Vigil & Action at Ft. Benning, November 20-22, 2009. Here’s a quick & easy way to help make this year’s event effective and successful… Help us spread the word by downloading and distributing the Southwest Weekend of Witness - Say No To Torture 2009 flyer. Give one to a friend, put one up on a well trafficked bulletin board, hand some out at a busy intersection or business or mail one to your mom and make her proud of you!
