Statement of Intent
Hello, my name is Ozone Bhaguan, disciple of the Maha Devi Ascension Movement. I am 33 years old. I currently reside in Duluth MN. I have performed an act of Civil Disobedience at the School of the Americas in Ft. Benning, Georgia on Nov. 18, 2007. My trail date is scheduled on Jan. 28th in Columbus, Georgia. I will face up to six months in prison and up to a 5,000 fine.

I am a prisoner of conscience, and I choose to cross the line so that I may inspire others. I crossed the line because I am UN-AFRAID to live and co-create a reality without war and the symbols the SOA represents. I crossed that line to stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters of central and Latin America that have been murdered, tortured and disappeared. I crossed the line to commemorate the anniversary of the murders of six Jesuit Priests, their housekeeper and her daughter at San Salvador University in November of 1989 in El Salvador.

I crossed the line to commemorate the murders of four Maryknoll sisters, They took Sister Maura Clark and Sister Ita Ford, Maryknoll nuns; Sister Dorothy Kazel, an Ursuline nun from Cleveland; and Jean Donovan, a lay worker from Westport, Conn., to a remote spot, where they raped, shot and killed them. I crossed the line to call public attention to a legislative bill, HR 1707, that has been submitted in the 110th Congress to bring accountability, justice and closure to the SOA.

I am here today, because I have a voice. “I am what cannot speak; I am what cannot be silenced.”

“Blessed are those that redeem the acts of humanity as their own”
