Protestors Greet President With Anti-War Message

Not everyone gave President Bush a warm welcome to the Mississippi coast. A group of protesters gathered on the south side of Highway 90 across from the coast coliseum. Many of the signs showed opposition to the ongoing war in Iraq.

Several of the protesters represent a group called United for Peace. There were also some individuals not affiliated with any particular group. They waved their signs at Highway 90 traffic and at the presidential motorcade.

"The world is different today. And short of blowing the whole world to hell, which we could do with nuclear weapons and nobody would benefit, short of that, no one can win that kind of colonial war anymore," protestor Glenn Sandburg said.

There were about a dozen protesters on the beach. Another group marched along Beauvoir and Pass Roads with protest signs.
