Tom Bottolene of Minnesota SOA Watch is a human rights activist and photographer Tom Bottolenewhose pictures have been published in ¡Presente!.
Tom "crossed the line" at Fort Benning in November 1999. A few months later, before serving a 3-month prison term for his act of civil disobedience, Tom noted, "I wish I could say I crossed the line at Fort Benning last November for some great and moving spiritual or moral reason. But the fact is I believe our government currently lacks any morals or any indication of a soul. When this is the case, attempting to appeal to our leaders on moral or spiritual grounds is useless. Quite simply, I crossed the line to irritate. Being one of ten out of the 4,405 people to cross the line and subsequently prosecuted, I apparently succeeded."
