Did you know that the U.S. Army School of the Americas (SOA) has graduated death squad leaders, human rights abusers and at least 11 high ranking military officials who went on to become dictators? Even though the school changed its name in 2001 to "Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation" in order to distract critics, known human rights abusers have again appeared in its enrollment lists.

The people of the Americas demand that the School of the Americas be shut down without delay. Take action NOW to make the SOA history.

Please join me in taking the first step to close this school of death.

Click here to send a message to your Representative in Congress, urging her or him to support legislation that will cut funding, suspend operations at the school and investigate its connection to human rights abuses. Follow-up with a phone call if you can. You can contact the DC office of your Representative by calling the Capitol Hill Switchboard at 202-224-3121.

Make a difference by adding your voice to the chorus of millions of people in the Western Hemisphere who strive for a life free from military repression.

Click here to learn more about the School of the Americas, its graduates and the impact that it has had on Latin America.

Then please forward this message to your friends and family and ask them to join you.

Join Rainforest Action Network & Global Exchange on Saturday April 7 when the "OIL ENFORCEMENT AGENCY" turns out in force to "police" the New York Auto Show.

Wearing "official" OEA uniforms and badges, and armed with caution tape, clipboards, and walkie-talkies, officers of this prophetic Federal law-enforcement agency will converge on the Jacob Javits center to impound vehicles that fall below the agency's recommended MPG guidelines, warn citizens about the public safety hazards of America's addiction to oil, and model what a real law enforcement agency should be doing about the climate crisis.

The OEA is recruiting now.
Contact : Agent Chartreuse (Andrew Boyd)
347/228-7416 cell

And check out our hilarious mockumentary at :

The OEA is the theatrical wing of the Freedom From Oil campaign:
Chapters are starting up around the country, offering a creative new way for people to take action to pressure the big-6 automakers to improve fuel-efficiency standards.

The Javits Center is located at 11th Ave., between 35th and 36th streets.  We will assemble at 11am in the little park across the street from the convention center's main entrance.  Uniforms and agency gear will be issued at that time.  If you can, please wear olive drab pants and black boots or shoes.  And choose a color-coded code name.  Agent Orange and Agent Chartreuse are already taken.

Officer-candidates that wish to receive pre-action training, please contact Agent Chartreuse (Andrew Boyd).
