Campus Protest

A “major” antiwar, anti-Bush protest was held here on the University of Tennessee campus yesterday. Approximately 70 people showed up to voice their disapproval of the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, and President Bush in general. Among the groups present were the UT College Democrats, the Progressive Student Alliance (sadly, the Living Wage Chicken was not attendance), and plenty of Naderites. The event featured speakers, a march across campus, large heads of unidentified individuals made from paper machete, and typical, peacenik signs.

The antiwar people were not alone, however. They were joined by about 30 supporters of President Bush and the liberation of Iraq, including myself. We held placards in support of the President, in an effort to shed the light of liberty on the UT campus. I was able to take the following photos.
