Arrest Bush Protest--UPDATE

UPDATE - Photo gallery of protest photos now available here.

On the eve of Barack Obama’s inauguration, protestors marched through the streets of D.C. behind a banner demanding “Arrest Bush.” Protestors demanded that Bush and others in his Regime be held accountable for the crimes against humanity they have perpetrated, and ended their protest by throwing a barrage of shoes in the direction of the White House, in what Raw Story website called “a symbolic gesture of solidarity with Muntadar al-Zeidi, an Iraqi correspondent for Al-Baghdadia television, who threw his shoes at President Bush as he gave a press briefing in Baghdad in Baghdad.”



The following video features a speech at the rally given by World Can’t Wait national director Debra Sweet.



World Can't Wait mobilizes people living in the United States to stand up and stop war on the world, repression and torture carried out by the US government. We take action, regardless of which political party holds power, to expose the crimes of our government, from war crimes to systematic mass incarceration, and to put humanity and the planet first.
