Subject: RE: Pete Seeger at Fort Benning, GA
I quote from the article:

"Name a massacre or assassination in Central or South America in the past quarter centruty and you'll find SOA trained henchmen at the bottom and top of it. Numerous chruch, veterans, and civic groups have called for its closing, including the AFL-CIO which sites the SOA as 'The Ultimate union buster'. SOA funding has been kept alive in the current, hawkish Congress by only the slenderest of majorities. And when civil law does not keep up with moral law conscience decrees the unjust law be broken. It's a tradition as old as the Boston Tea Party and profound as the civil rights movement."

"In addition to members Pete and Tao, stalwarts like Chicago based "Voices," Jolie Rickman and Colleen Kattan from New York and Steve Jacobs from Missouri are musical veterans of the cause. This year Local 1000 will be well represented. In addition to members Pete and Tao will be Charlie King, Karen Brqndow, Anne Feeney (former President of the Pittsburgh Local) and Jon Fromer (San Francisco based producer of the labor documentary series "We Do the Work" and a host of others.
