School of the Americas Watch protests at Columbus monument and in Takoma

On the 31st of March, School of the Americas Watch showed up at the Columbus Monument in front of Union Station. They were there to condemn the ongoing legacy of colonialism, disposession, and murder of Indigenous people started by Columbus and continued today by graduates of the infamous “School of Coups” at Ft Benning, Ga.

After the Columbus Monument appearance, SOA Watch activists boarded Metro to Takoma Park, MD for an educational event in a park. I will post a report on that part of the action after I pick up footage from a fellow activist who stayed with them on the Metro as I returned to another event.
