Gold Star Families For Peace, Friday July 13, 2007
Yesterday we made our way to Montgomery Ala. We had a very moving and inspiring tour of the Civil Rights memorial. Seeing the struggle of our fore bearers lifted our resolve to carry on our own struggle.
We had a rally where we were joined by Ava Lowery the founder of Peace Takes Courage
We would like to thank our Montgomery organizers and hosts. It was a wonderful stop along our journey.
Our next stop: Saturday July 14, 2007
Cindy Sheehan and the journey for Humanity will be staging a protest at the Highway gate at Ft. Benning. Ft. Benning is the hone of the School of the Americas where our military trains foreign governments to torture.
Our own Government is currently torturing detainees in Guantanamo Bay Cuba and violation the Geneva Conventions by surrendering detainees to other countries which have no laws or restrictions against torture.
These Barbaric practices must be stop.
Please join at Ft. Benning FROM 10AM-11AM where we will loudly shout "NO MORE TORTURE, NO MORE TERROR IN OUR NAMES"
