Subject: Pete Seeger at Fort Benning, GA
From: Frank Hamilton
Date: 19 Nov 99 - 11:54 AM

Pete Seeger and his grandson Tao Rodriguez will be represnted as members of Musician's Union 1000 to protest the funding for the School of The Americas (the infamous training camp for death squads in Latin America) on Nov. 19-21 on the grounds of Fort Benning, GA. I read about this in the Musician's Union magazine.

Hey Singer/Songwriters, how about some new songs about the SOA?

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.

Frank, can you give me more information on 'Members of Union 1000' or the history of this union. Is it an association? Or a one time thing. I'm not familiar with it

We'll be doing something here in Montpelier VT tomorrow in solidarity (noon, the federal building, the Women's INternational League for Peace and Freedom folks, the Raging Grannies singing) Great to hear that Pete will be in GA. Thanks for the reminder Frank, I might have missed it in the busy weekend.

Frank, I try to keep pretty informed but that SOA is completely new to me. What do it's supporters use as their arguments? I'm going to check the net tomorrow.
