Over 50 Oregonians arrived in Columbus GA last night to join the annual protest and vigil at the School of the Americas, uncertain as to whether a permit had been granted for their planned procession. In a late-night email, Eugene activist Donna Frasier reported: "Judge Faircloth granted the permit... saying if the Army needed to be protected from this group of nonviolent people then we really were all in trouble."  More coverage will be posted as the action continues to evolve.
