Rally to Demand “Zero Tolerance for Torture”

and Closure of U.S. Army’s School of the Americas

Residents of Long Island will join thousands from across the nation at Fort Benning, Georgia on the weekend of November 15 to 18, to demand a dramatic shift in U.S. foreign policy and the closure of the controversial U.S. Army’s School of the Americas (SOA).

Bill McNulty, a committed member of SOA Watch for the past 15 years, said: "Despite a shocking human rights record, this school continues to operate with US taxpayer money. Closing the SOA would send a strong human rights message to Latin America and the world.”

The SOA, now called the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation, made headlines in 1996 when the Pentagon released training manuals used at the school that advocated torture, extortion and execution. Despite this admission and hundreds of documented human rights abuses connected to soldiers trained at the school, no independent investigation into the facility has ever taken place. New research confirms that the school continues to support known human rights abusers. Despite investigation by the United Nations for ordering the shooting of 16 indigenous peasants in El Salvador, Col. Francisco del Cid Diaz returned to SOA/ WHINSEC in 2003.

Support for the SOA/ WHINSEC continues to erode. The governments of Argentina, Uruguay, Venezuela and Bolivia have ceased all training at the school.

Last November, 22,000 people gathered at the gates of Ft. Benning to call for the closure of the school, the largest demonstration yet in a 16-year history of opposition to the school.

For the past 16 years, an Ecumenical Service of Remembrance took place in churches of various denominations across Long Island. It is a night for remembrance of the six Jesuit Priests, their co-workers, four American churchwomen and Archbishop Romero, who were assassinated by graduates of the SOA. This year, on Friday, November 9, at 7:30PM, at Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal R.C. Church, Straight Path in Wyandanch, people of all faiths will gather to remember… and to bless this year’s travelers to Fort Benning, Georgia on the weekend of November 15-18. They will give witness, through peaceful protest, to their prayers for an end to SOA…supported by our tax dollars…where training in torture and assassination has been taking place for since its forerunner was founded in 1946.

East Hampton Artist Exhibits "Cities of Peace"

Ellen Frank's exhibit "Cities of Peace" will be on view in Bronxvile New York at the OSilas Gallery at Concordia College from November 5 through December 14 (excepting Nov. 22-25).

There will be an opening lecture on Thursday, November 8 from 7 to 8 pm in the Gallery with a reception to follow.

In contrast to September 11, wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and ongoing crises in the Middle East and Africa, the gold-illuminated Cities of Peace paintings honor conflict-torn cities, their people, history, and traditions. The series of nine paintings includes works representing Jerusalem, Lhasa, Baghdad, Kabul, Beijing, and New York. Cities of Peace emphasizes understanding as prerequisite to peace and celebrates the best of the human spirit, transforming anguish into beauty.

The paintings pay homage to traditional illuminated manuscript painting, but in monumental scale and in a broader context that is reflective of the contemporary art world.

Cities of Peace was produced at the Ellen Frank Illumination Arts Foundation in East Hampton, New York, with interns from China, Korea, Colombia, Estonia, Japan, Poland, and the United States, under the artistic direction of Ellen Frank.

The OSilas Gallery is located in the Donald A. Krenz Academic Center on the second level of Scheele Memorial Library on Concordia College’s Bronxville campus.
