In Georgia, thousands of people protested Saturday outside the gates of Fort Benning to call for the closure of the military training center formerly known as the School of the Americas. Twenty-six people were arrested, including a news team from the international TV network Russia Today. The school, now known as WHISC, or the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation, is used to train Latin American soldiers in combat, counterinsurgency and counter-narcotics.
