Vigil procession. Over 16,000 people attended this year's rally and vigil against the school of assassins and dictators, the School of the Americas. 16,000 is a high number for this event, which usually ranges between 8,000 and 18,000. I suppose the palpable anger among liberals and leftists over the war, as well as the upswing two years ago in the anti-war movement, has contributed to the higher turnout. Maybe the anti-war movement isn't dead now afterall.
