Fasting to Close the SOA


October 30, 2012 will be a day of fasting for SOA Watch; a time to organize fasts in your community to bring attention to SOA/WHINSEC victims and an opportunity for each of us to commit ourselves to closing this place of injustice. Local fasts nationwide can educate the public about the School of the Americas / WHINSEC, the reality of U.S. foreign policy towards Latin America, and the upcoming November Vigil at the gates of Fort Benning, Georgia (November 16-18, 2012).

Below you will find a few suggestions of possible public fast locations or events you could plan in your community on or around Tuesday, October 30, 2012. We encourage you to be creative in planning your fast or events, and keep us informed of what's going on out in your region! Some fast or event locations could include:
  • Outside a district Congressional office that has not supported legislation to close the SOA/WHINSEC
  • On your university's campus
  • At a community center

Other ideas:

Good luck with your planning! If you have questions or suggestions, please call the DC SOA Watch Office at 202-234-3440

Close the SOA Fast!
When we fast in front of Federal buildings, we can raise awareness about one of the great evils that our government sustains. We can invite those who witness our fast to flood the White House comment line with phone calls at 202-456-1111, to express our opposition to the continued operations at the SOA/ WHINSEC. We can use our fast to show the media and the public that the U.S. government needs to be held accountable.


You can participate in this one-day fast by organizing a place for you and your friends to fast together, or by fasting individually.
