One-Day Fast to Close the SOA

Tuesday, October 30: One-Day Fast to Close the SOA

Fasting has been present in all the world's spiritual traditions. Fasts help focus an individual or a group, deepen ones commitment, and have often been used as an effective nonviolent tool for achieving social change. SOA Watch is calling on human rights activists to engage in a 1 Day Fast to Close the SOA on October 30, in the lead-up to the November Vigil at the gates of Fort Benning, Georgia. Participants in the fast will abstain from food and only drink water on October 30, 2012.
On Tuesday, October 30, 2012, I will join human rights activists across the Americas in a one-day fast to honor those killed by graduates of the School of the Americas and U.S. militarization.
