Anti-War Protests

At least 8,000 people gathered at Fort Benning, Georgia on the weekend of November 17-18 to demand the closure of the U.S. army's "School of the Americas" (SOA) and an end to the war in Afghanistan. The demonstration exposed the U.S. government's long history of state-sponsored terrorism, especially in Latin America. Similar anti-war protests continue to be organized throughout the world.

Other recent actions include:

Other mass actions were organized in Britain, South Korea, Tokyo, Australia and elsewhere. In the U.S., thousands joined in anti-war, anti-WTO actions in New York, Washington, D.C., San Francisco, Atlanta, Chicago and many other cities.
