vigil to close the School of the Americas

I am headed to the vigil this week! Proud to be part of the largest event against US Empire inside the belly of the beast.

Again we will be providing simultaneous interpretation of the entire outdoor and much of the indoor program into Spanish. We also hope this year to stream some of our interpretation online, and I'll let you know here if and where we get that set up. Wish us luck for getting that working!

If you can't make it this year you can support our work, and this powerful and important movement, by making a donation. We have a slim $1,000 budget for the interpreting, but even covering that is hard, so every bit helps - even $5 would be great, and really, it feels great to know you're a part of this. To do this go to the SOA Watch site and click the donate button on the upper right.

You can also support our team next weekend by doing last minute press release translations into Spanish from home (let me know if you are up for this).

And one last way you could be a part of this work is with suggestions and clean up of our very old glossary of terms.

here is another video not about but by an accompanier. A non-musical description of this community's struggle is here, in another accompanier blog.

new peace brigades videos (1)

There's suddenly a bunch of new videos out about accompaniment. This one profiles my friend Jacob! It's fantastic. The best short intro to "what accompaniers do" that I've seen.
