On behalf of the St Pat's Social Justice Committee, I'd like to invite you to a letter writing event in the Social Hall (downstairs) after both masses this Sunday.
The House of Representatives recently voted in favor of an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act which forces the public release of names, rank, country of origin, courses and dates of attendance of SOA/WHINSEC's graduates and instructors.
In order for this amendment to become law, the text of the amendment has to be approved by a joint House and Senate conference committee. We need to sustain intense pressure on the Senate for the next few weeks to make sure this amendment is approved by the conference committee!
This is an especially important time for the SOAW movement, as the military leader of the coup d'etat in Honduras, Gen. Romeo Vásquez Velásquez received training at the SOA/WHINSEC.
Please join us after mass this Sunday.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
