School of the Americas Watch (SOAW) have a poster featuring ‘the people’ cutting of the limbs of a skulltopus (Illustration by Haik Hoisington, 2006). The text roughly translates as: “The School Closure Of Murderers! Never More! Enough already!” (Google Translate, Accessed: 29th Nov 2008).

To give this image context SOAW decribe themselves on their homepage (http://www.soaw.org) as:

“SOA Watch is an independent organization that seeks to close the US Army School of the Americas, under whatever name it is called, through vigils and fasts, demonstrations and nonviolent protest, as well as media and legislative work. ”
