OF TORTURE AND CONSCIENCE

Speakers:
CARLOS MAURICIO
Torture victim, El Salvador
DAVID SYLVESTER and SARAH HARPER
Activists against the School of the Americas

Nearly twenty-three years ago, a death squad burst into Carlos Mauricio's university classroom in San Salvador, El Salvador, and took him away for ten days of beatings and abuse. Last month, he finally won his case against the generals who ordered his abduction and torture, which he had brought before an Atlanta appellate court.

David Sylvester and Sarah Harper are Bay Area activists who were so outraged at U.S. torture policies that they took their protest to the School of the Americas, a torture-tactics training school in Ft. Benning, Georgia. They will soon begin serving three-month prison terms for their involvement in the protests.

The program will be broadcast and webcast live on Mid-Peninsula Community Media Cable Channel 27 and rebroadcast throughout March as part of the ongoing "Other Voices" television series produced by Peninsula Peace and Justice Center.

Free and open to the public. Sponsored by Peninsula Peace and Justice Center // (650) 326-8837 // http://www.peaceandjustice.org
