Dear pbnb reader,
The image on the new SOA WATCH T-SHIRT in the email below is very meaningful to me, as it depicts what I think this movement is all about. Memoria y Resistencia / Memory and Resistance. Last year, myself and three fellow SOA Watch activists were arrested in Washington, DC, when we took part in creating a 10′ poster mural with the same image in the streets of Washington, DC. They wanted to silence the message that we were putting out in the streets, but by arresting us, it only brought more attention to the issue. 🙂
Check out the news segment that TeleSur aired following our arrest: https://youtu.be/DioB1s0ZA3Q

100% of profits will benefit SOA Watch’s campaigns against militarization, and for a more peaceful world. The SWEATSHOP-FREE SOA WATCH T-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 Ft. Benning, Georgia.
The word ¡Presente! means “here” or “present” in Spanish. It is used at the gates of Ft. Benning, Georgia, when we remember those who were martyred by SOA graduates. We pronounce their names and bring their spirits before us as we respond: ¡Presente! You are here with us, and you are not forgotten.
