She's in Jail for Us, We're on the Loose for Her!

Theresa is serving 6 months for crossing the line at the School of the Americas, Ft Benning, Georgia, USA last November on the anniversary of the slaying of 6 Jesuits & 2 Salvadoran co-workers (mother & daughter).

*Background on Theresa and her resistance to S.O.A.

Dear Folks ,

Our friend Theresa Cusimano is serving a six month prison sentence in an Alabama county jail, for crossing the line onto Fort Benning, Georgia, to speak out against unjust U.S. foreign policy and the continued existence of the School of the Americas (SOA/ WHINSEC). Would you be able to send her a letter, to let her know that she is not alone, and that we are keeping up the resistance on the outside while she is incarcerated? Thank you! Theresa needs to feel our support right now.

Her address is:

Theresa Cusimano, #49903
Lee County Sheriff's Jail - Section D-3
1900 Frederick Road
Opelika, AL 36801-7212
