USA

To commemorate the 20th anniversary of the assassination of six Jesuits and two lay collaborators at the University of Central America (UCA) in El Salvador, the annual Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice is scheduled to take place again at Fort Benning in Columbus, Georgia. The School of the Americas (SOA), where the perpetrators were trained and for whose closure the participants have been protesting for the last 12 years, will be the focus of the Teach-In for the last time. From 2010, the Teach-In will take place at the same time but in a different location each year. The US House of Representatives passed a resolution on 21 October honouring the six Jesuit priests and two women murdered in El Salvador in 1989.
