School of Americas 2009 Vigil and Direct Action

Starting Date: 11-20-2009
Ending Date: 11-22-2009

Ft. Benning, Georgia
United States
November 20-22, 2009 – Converge on Fort Benning, Georgia

The military coup by SOA graduates in Honduras has once again exposed the destabilizing and deadly effects that the School of the Americas has on Latin America. The actions of the school’s graduates are unmasking the Pentagon rhetoric and reveal the anti-democratic results of U.S. policies. It is time for a change towards justice.

From November 20-22, 2009, thousands will vigil at the gates of Fort Benning, Georgia, to stand up for justice, to shut down the School of the Americas and to end the oppressive U.S. foreign policy that the school represents.
