Father Roy Bourgeois in NYC and Long Island April 2 & 3

By admin on March 24, 2009

Come out and meet SOA Watch founder Father Roy Bourgeois on his visit to Long Island and NYC! The Maryknoll priest and Vietnam veteran will talk about the 17-year history of the movement to close the SOA. He has served prison time for his nonviolent protest of the SOA/WHINSEC and continues to travel the country speaking out against it and similar programs. Last year, a measure to close the SOA lost by only six votes. Fr. Roy is a great example of faith in practice. Sadly, the Catholic Church recently threatened to ex-communicate him for his support of women priests.
