January 9th marks the anniversary of a riot that occurred in Panama which killed upwards of 21 Panamanians and 4 US soldiers.

The riot was the result of a disagreement between Panamanian students and Panama Canal Zone police officers. On January 9th, 1964 two-hundred Panamanian high school students marched to Balboa High School in the U.S. Canal Zone to raise the Panamanian flag in what was expected to be a peaceful protest. January 9th is a national holiday in Panama as a result of this historical incident.
