Walk For World Peace
04 Nov 2004
Close the School of Americas Walk For World Peace - Join the 5th Annual Peace Pilgrimage Atlanta to Fort Benning, GA - November 13-21, 2004
The Most Venerable Nichidatsu Fujii engaged in the practice of a walking Peace Pilgrimage as one way to cultivate compassion and to defeat the forces that lead to war, In this spirit the Buddhist monks of Nipponzan Myohoji-Atlanta Dojo initiated an annual Peace Walk to the School of Americas(now called the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation) in 1999 to support the mass movement to CLOSE THE SOA. The SOA, a school for Latin American officers run by the U.S. Army, is internationally notorious for traning assassins, torturers, and human rights abusers. We cannot live at peace with our neighbors to the south so long as this school exists. Nor can we live at peace in this world so long as our society requires world economic domination to sustain itself. Step by step we seek to move toward a social life that never allows for murder, destruction or exploitation to sustain itself.

We invite people of faith and peace to join for all or any part of this 100-plus mile pilgrimage.
