***Action Alert***

Gather in Long Island to oppose the School of the Americas…

Please join the annual local protest of the School of Americas

Saturday, November 21, 2009
at 1:00 PM
in front of the office of Rep. Peter King
located at 1003 Park Blvd , Massapequa Park .

(Please take Sunrise Highway to Park Blvd —House of Pancakes is on south side of Sunrise H—and turn north.  King’s office is just north of Sunrise H/RR Station.  There is parking available behind the stores if there is no space on the street.)

This Long Island protest will be taking place at the same time as the yearly annual vigil is at the gates of the School of Americas in Ft Benning, Georgia .

Despite the long history of human rights abuses associated with the graduates of this institution it continues to exist.

Despite the fact it has been renames Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation it has not changed.

Organized by the South Country Peace Group in conjunction with Long Island School of Americas Watch
