Anti-Bush rally in Salt Lake City (* is there for Mc* fundraiser) - pics

Daniel Ellsberg, center right, applauds at an anti-Bush rally Wednesday, May 28, 2008, in Salt Lake City. Former mayor Rocky Anderson, center left, organized the protest. Anderson also participated in anti-Bush marches when he was in office during presidential visits to the state. President George W. Bush is visiting Utah for two fund raisers on behalf of Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz. In 1971, Ellsberg leaked the Pentagon Papers, a secret report on the Vietnam War.

3. I love Salt Lake City, it's not what most people think it is.
Daniel Ellsberg and Rocky Anderson.

Works for me.

19.  Protesters flay 'abuses of power'
By Jared Page and Leigh Dethman
Deseret News
Published: Thursday, May 29, 2008 12:04 a.m. MDT

... Chanse Frenette, ... a University of Utah student, called the war in Iraq a crime and said the United States should have never gone there in the first place ...

"I'm getting a very good impression of the reddest state in the union," Ellsberg said as he looked out over the crowd and the collection of signs filled with harsh words for President Bush. "It looks kind of purple at the moment" ...

Also speaking at the rally were Marshall Thompson, an Iraq veteran and peace activist who walked the entire state of Utah calling for withdrawal from Iraq and Kathy Snyder, a Utah mother of a serviceman who was killed in Iraq.

20. That's pretty good!
Hasn't Utah been consistently red for (at least) the past eight years?

K&R for the fabulous photos! :patriot:
