Dear supporters of School of the Americas Watch — West,
I have long been active in opposition to the WHISC/SOA, I set this Website up and have hosted it for years. I have several dozen Websites at PeaceHost.net, some for peace & justice organizations, some of my own. As much as I wish to, I cannot get very involved in content for most of them – I simply lack the time.
I have tutored a number of folks in maintaining their own Websites; I continue to accept updates for the numerous ’sites that I maintain, and they all make it pretty easy for me.
I have frequently been swamped, and my ’sites have suffered neglect. Some recovered; some fell by the wayside, where I received little or no support (I’m not talking monetary support. I do all of this on a volunteer basis.) I put out a plea for help, and if none is forthcoming, the Website usually lay fallow. The last time I cried for help on this one was more than a year ago. I even offered to set up ’sites for the East Bay and the Contra Costa chapters, and got not response.
I asked, and received no indication that anyone was even coming to the site (I should have put up a counter, but I didn’t.)
Well, I’ll give it another try. If there’s anyone out there who is interested, I’d love to see this become a vibrant, working Website. Anyone willing to help with content, let me know. Anyone wanting a sub-regional Website, tell me.
Meanwhile, I'll do the best I can, starting with the latest update, and adding a link to a song I composed in memory of the six Jesuit priests & their co-workers, called “Lagrimas”.
