EAD 2017 International Plenary

Global impact of U.S. militarization

Ecumenical Advocacy Days brought together nearly 1,000 in Washington, D.C. April 21-24, for its 15th national gathering and lobby day. This year’s annual event focused on Christian advocacy to support a moral federal budget which retains key spending in support of vulnerable populations while rejecting exorbitant Pentagon spending. The following article is a summary of international plenary on the third day of the conference.

2014 vigil at SOA, Stewart Detention Center

On November 21-23, over 2,000 people gathered at the gates of Ft. Benning in Columbus, GA to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the murders of six Jesuits, their housekeeper and her daughter at the Universidad Centroamericana (University of Central America, UCA) in El Salvador. Those responsible for the massacre were military leaders who had trained at the U.S. Army School of the Americas (SOA), located at Ft. Benning; the program has been re-named the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation (WHINSEC).
