Vigil with SOA Watch in DC - September and October
This September and October SOA Watch will Vigil every Wednesday, in front of Congress and spend the day urging members of Congress to co-sponsor HR 2567, the bill to stop and investigate the School of the Americas/WHINSEC. The bill was introduced in May by Rep. James McGovern (MA-3) and currently has 61 co-sponsors. If your representative has not already co-sponsored this legislation, please ask him/her to do so.
WE NEED YOU TO COME AND JOIN US FOR ONE OF THESE WEDNESDAYS. We will Vigil from 7:30 AM to 9:30 AM In front of the House of Representatives. After vigiling, we will lobby congressional offices, distribute materials and spread the word on Capitol Hill.
