October 04, 2001

Five protestors arrested during the Republican Convention last fall in Philadelphia for blocking intersections andhighways as part of a street theatre performance were acquitted on Tuesday in a Philadelphia court.

The activists are involved in the movement to close down the US Army School of the Americas at Fort Benning, Georgia,which trains Latin American military officers and has a long history of graduating some of the world’s worst humanrights abusers.

They say that if the Bush Administration is serious about fighting terrorists and cutting off their funds it mightbegin right here at home.
