Essential Information: School of Assassins/Americas

"We're always going to need peacemakers in the world. There's a difference between keeping the peace for truly peaceful means and preemptive strikes on sovereign nations because you've created boogiemen." - Stephen Schweitzer in a December 2007 interview with Jack Gilroy and special thanks to essentialdissent.blogspot.com

Stand up for justice and human rights from November 21-23, during the annual November vigil to close the SOA/WHINSEC at the gates of Fort Benning, Georgia. Thousands travel from around the country and Latin America to take part in a historic gathering where torture survivors, social movement leaders, civil rights activists, grandmothers, anti-war veterans, students, presidential candidates and members of Congress have all come together to take a stand against the violence and racism that the SOA/WHINSEC represents.

Fly By - Tom Noble

"My paintings are of an imaginary world, a pre-industrial Arcadia, a time when Northern New Mexico was nothing but rural villages, usually with a church in the center. Life was based on agriculture, and living in harmony with the changing seasons."
