All Day

Protest School of Americas, Fort Benning, GA

November 15 - November 17
Fort Benning, GA

Nov 15-17, at Fort Benning, Georgia; SOA Watch 30th Anniversary Commemorative Gathering. Come to protest the school where US trained dictators, murderers, and torturers. Formerly called SOA, School of Americas, also SCHOOL OF ASSASSINS, now re-named. This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Central American University (UCA) massacre. On the morning of Nov. 16, 1989 the Atlacatl Battalion of the Salvadoran Army, led by 19 School of the Americas (SOA) graduates, entered university grounds and brutally assassinated Elba Ramos, her 16-year old daughter, Celina Ramos, and six Jesuit priests–amongst them, Father Ignacio Ellacuría, an outspoken critic of El Salvador’s military dictatorship. The SOA Watch movement initially formed to denounce this massacre — one of the many atrocities that occurred in Central America as the United States funded civil wars and trained military at the SOA/WHINSEC.
