School of the Americas protest had its biggest day
According to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer—
At least 20 people were arrested Sunday while protesting a U.S.-run military school for Latin Americans, some of whose graduates they claim later committed civil rights abuses including murder.
Those arrested were among about a record 16,000 people who demonstrated outside the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation at Fort Benning, calling for the school to be shut down.
Susan Sarandon and Martin Sheen showed up to speak.
