Since 1990, people have gathered each November at the gates of Ft. Benning – home of the SOA – on the anniversary of the 1989 massacre of 14-year-old Celina Ramos, her mother Elba and six Jesuit priests in El Salvador. Nineteen of the 26 Salvadoran army officers responsible for this atrocity were trained at the SOA. In November, we commemorate all those who have died at the hands of SOA-trained soldiers — as well as to celebrate the resistance and to take action to end this training and the racism, repression and failed policy it represents.
