Hold the Accomplices of the School of the Americas Accountable! PDF Print E-mail
These 26 Congresspeople ignored the call of the American people to close the SOA. Ignoring your voices, these 26 voted for injustice, for impunity and for the continuation of a school whose shameful legacy is one of torture and support for brutal dictatorships. They caved to the demands of the WHINSEC & Pentagon, who spent unknown quantities of tax-payer money pressuring these Representatives just before the vote. Offered a chance to stand in solidarity with the people of Latin America, they chose to side with a school whose graduates have killed tens of thousands of people throughout Latin America.

These 26 Congresspeople ignored you, the very consituents they are elected to represent, and they need to hear from you.
