Columbus, Georgia USA - Thousands of people rallied at the gates of Fort Benning, demanding the closure of the School of the Americas, where the military trains Latin American combat soldiers. Graduates of the School have been implicated in torture and murder in their home countries, and led the 2009 military coup in Honduras. Still popularly called the School of the Americas, it has been officially renamed the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation. One Protestor at the rally wore a mortarboard with a hangmans noose for a tassel to symbolize the actions of SOA graduates. - Jim West - 2009-11-22
