In preparation for the annual vigil at Ft. Benning, Georgia, SOAW LI and Cinema Arts Centre host a film and talk with SOA prisoner of conscience Father Luis Barrios
On Thursday, November 5, Cinema Arts Centre will screen the documentary The New Patriots, a documentary by renowned filmmaker Robert Richter, about five U.S. military veterans who speak about their transformation from warriors to peace activists. Among the featured vets are SOA cofounder Fr. Roy Bourgeois and SOA prisoner of conscience Charlie Liteky (pictured below, left), who won the Congressional Medal of Honor for his heroism in the Vietnam war.
Following the film, Fr. Luis Barrios of IFCO / Pastors for Peace will speak, and The Last Internationale will perform. Barrios (below, right), who is also a professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, was profiled last week in a New York Times article, “Theology from Classroom to Jailhouse.”
