On Sunday, November 23, Eve Tetaz, an 83-year-old author, veteran peace and justice activist and retired public schoolteacher from Washington, DC, crossed through a side entrance onto the Fort Benning military base in a solitary nonviolent witness, carrying with her a poster of one of the 43 students from Ayotzinapa, disappeared in Mexico, and the prophetic Isaiah verse, “they shall beat their swords into plowshares.” After the procession at the main gates concluded, longtime SOA Watch activist Nashua Chantal, a 62-year-old human rights defender from Americus, Georgia, carried a ladder to the fence which military police erected to keep our peaceful message from entering the base. This is the third arrest at Fort Benning for Nashua, who previously served a three-month sentence in 2005 and six months in 2013 for crossing the line.
