Killing school

Issue No. 1674

SOME 9,000 protesters demonstrated outside the US Army School of the Americas at Fort Benning, Georgia, last Saturday. The school has been used by the US military to train brutal right wing death squads.

Saturday's protest marked the tenth anniversary of the massacre of six Jesuit priests in El Salvador by death squads trained by the 'School of Assassins', as the Fort Benning institute has been dubbed. Protesters carried wooden crosses bearing the names of victims of the school's graduates.
