#EartDay March to the Pentagon
SOA Watch activists, including several former Prisoners of Conscience, joined the National Campaign for Nonviolent Resistance this morning at two actions at the Environmental Protection Agency and at the Pentagon, to call out the Pentagon's role in the destruction of Mother Earth. 8 of the activists were arrested by #Pentagon police, when they demanded a meeting with Pentagon officials and refused to leave without it.

Since the SOA graduate-led military coup in 2009, Honduras has become the most dangerous country in the world for environmental and land activists. Indigenous environmental campaigners are particularly at risk because they are up against powerful political and economic interests who have grown used to exploiting their land with impunity.
