NO Seismic Airgun Testing in the Atlantic!
Press Conference and Demonstration
When: Tuesday, February 5th from 12 p.m. until 1 p.m.
Where: Marion Square, 329 Meeting Street
Imagine if a jet plane flew over your head every 10 seconds, 24 hours a day, for weeks at a time. A jet plane is just a small taste of the disruptive and deafening impact that seismic airgun testing will have on marine life if we don’t take action now. Join us Tuesday, February 5th at Marion Square in Charleston for a press conference and demonstration urging the Department of the Interior to reject seismic airgun testing in the Atlantic!
From the School of the Americas Watch:
The annual vigil to close down the SOA/WHINSEC will take place from November 18-20, 2011 in Columbus, Georgia, home to the School of the Americas. Read More
The School of the Americas (SOA) in Fort Benning, GA has trained over 60,000 Latin American soldiers in interrogation tactics, psychological warfare, and counterinsurgency techniques, and its graduates have tortured, raped and killed union and student organizers, teachers, clergy and others working for human rights in Latin America.
In a dramatic protest, 42 activists with Witness Against Torture were arrested this afternoon at the U.S. Capitol. The protest comes on the eve of the since-voided deadline President Obama had set for closing the prison camp at Guantanamo.
