Pre Trial Meetings and Festival of Hope If you are a defendant, please try and be in Columbus for 5:00 dinner by Wednesday January 21st. Support people are invited to come early, but we hope that a primary support person can be in Columbus for pre-trial support meetings by 12:00 on Friday the 23rd.

On Sunday night at 7:00 PM we will hold a Festival of Hope to celebrate our work to close the SOA. If you would like to share any talents (music, song, poetry, etc.) at the Festival of Hope please contact Eric ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

The meetings and Festival of Hope will be in the Howard Johnson Presidential and Carter Rooms (706) 322-6641, 1011 Veterans Pkwy).

Housing and Food
There are several options for housing in Columbus. Our meetings will be at the Howard Johnson and often people choose to stay there. Less expensive options are the Days Inn and Motel 6. You can ask for the SOA Watch group rate at the HoJo or the Days Inn. Also we?ve arranged plenty of sleeping bag space (there are quite a few beds available as well) at Southgate Building 11. We ask for a 5 to 10 dollar donation a night or what ever you can afford. You can reserve a space in the Southgates by contacting Lana Jacobs at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
