Texas Resisters: 3 in a row under the hood

~Saturday, August 22

Jail Demo for Travis & Victor, Aug 22nd
1:00 - 2:00 PM, Bell Co. Jail Annex, 110 W. Central Ave., Belton, Texas (less than an hour away from Austin)

Over the last few weeks, two soldiers at Ft. Hood, Texas were court martialed and jailed for their public refusal to deploy to Afghanistan. Victor Agosto is serving a 30-day sentence in a Bell Co. jail, and last week Travis Bishop received a bad conduct discharge and a one-year jail sentence for his refusal to deploy. Both men have taken a courageous stand in following their moral conviction that the US war in Afghanistan is illegal and immoral. This Saturday, stand with antiwar GI’s and civilians in a solidarity vigil at the jail where Travis is being held.
