Call Congress to Close the School of the Assassins

1 post / 0 new

SOA Watch is having lobbying days on Capitol Hill today and tomorrow. You can help out by calling your Representative!

From the SOA Watch webiste:

Representative James McGovern (MA) reintroduced the Latin America Military Training Review Act as HR 3368 on November 4, 2011 along with 21 other original co-sponsors. This legislation would suspend operations at the SOA/ WHINSEC, investigate torture manuals and human rights abuses associated with the school, and conduct an assessment of military training in Latin America.

Across the country, grassroots activists are working to add their Member of Congress as a cosponsor, or supporter, of this bill. Has your Representative cosponsored this bill? Check this list of HR 3368 cosponsors to find out.

If they are not on the list, be a part of the campaign and take action! If your Representative is a co-sponsor, be sure to thank them for their support.

(You can also check your Representative's record on this issues by seeing if s/he was one of 69 Representatives to sign a letter to President Obama asking him to close the SOA and/or one of 103 Representatives who co-sponsored HR 2567 in the 111th Congress)
