Utah antiwar demo draws 2000
While Bush was in Salt Lake City addressing the Veterans of Foreign Wars convention, an estimated 2000 antiwar demonstrators gathered to address Bush. Celeste Zappala, co-founder of Gold Star Mothers with Cindy Sheehan, was the featured speaker. The mayor of SLC also spoke.
According to the AP,
One of the event's organizers, Aaron Davis with a group called Veterans for Peace, said he filed a permit for a gathering of 1,000 people. Thirty minutes into the three-hour event Monday, he said he knew there would be that many and more.
This is good news.
