ABC News came to report us…

BLACK FRIDAY PROTESTS 2014

Northern Illinois Jobs with Justice with Occupy Naperville, Occupy Elgin, and Fox Valley Citizens for Peace and Justice will be protesting low wages, unpredictable and unreasonable work schedules, and retaliation against those workers who assert their rights to take action for better conditions. Walmart is the Industry model and therefore our main target.

The School of the Americas (SOA) is a combat training school for Latin American soldiers, located at Fort Benning, Georgia. The school was founded in 1946 and from 1961 was assigned the specific goal of teaching “anti-communist counterinsurgency training,” a role which it would fulfill for the rest of the Cold War. SOA and WHINSEC graduates continue to surface in news reports regarding both current human rights cases and new reports.
