Just to let you guys know, there's a huge protest at Fort Benning, GA from Nov. 17-19. At the fort, there is a school called the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation (formerly the School of Americas). It's a military school where soldiers from countries in Central and South America and the Carribean go to train. Unfortunately, a lot of the graduates of the school have ended up murdering, torturing and oppressing their own people.

The protest is done every year in an attempt to get the school shut down on the aniversary of the masacre of Jesuit priests in El Salvador by a regime set up by a graduate of WHINSEC. My girlfriend and I are going to be there, (I'll be brandishing my newly made black flag :)) so I thought I'd extend an invitation. For more information, see the School of Americas Watch here.

So yeah. I hope you'll consider being there.
