Maryknollers have been actively supporting the SOA Watch campaign to close the School of the Americas (now WHINSEC) at Fort Benning, Georgia since 1990, and you can too.
Purchase a limited edition t-shirt and support the growth of the movement for justice and self-determination in the Americas. 100% of profits will benefit SOA Watch's campaigns against militarization, and for a more peaceful world. The sweatshop-free shirts are being hand printed with inks that are easy on the environment. The design by César Maxit shows Ingrid Carillo, holding a picture of her relative, who was forcibly disappeared by SOA-trained security forces. The image is based on a photo by Linda Panetta, taken at the gates of Fort Benning, Georgia.
The word ¡Presente! means "here" or "present" in Spanish. It is used at the gates of Fort Benning, Georgia, when we remember those who were martyred by state security forces. We pronounce their names and bring their spirits before us as we respond: ¡Presente! You are here with us, and you are not forgotten.
Take the message with you wherever you go, and support the important work for justice in the Americas. Order your shirt here: SOAW/org/tshirt/MOGC.
