The Salt Lake Tribune recently reported that Salt Lake City Mayor Rocky
Anderson called for protests during President Bush's appearance Monday
before a national veterans convention. "This administration has been
disastrous to the country," Anderson said.
The president of the Salt Lake City chapter of Veterans for Peace,
Davis said today: "We are protesting the Bush agenda of these aggressive
wars; we support the troops, let's bring them home now, and treat them
right when they come back." Smith is a member of Military Families Speak Out.

ANTONIA JUHASZ, email@example.com,
Juhasz wrote the recent piece "Bush's Economic Invasion of Iraq" for
the Los Angeles Times, in which she stated: "What hasn't been on the table
[in the constitution process] is at least as important to the formation of
a new Iraq: the country's economic structure. The Bush administration has
succeeded in maintaining a stranglehold on issues such as public versus
private ownership of resources, foreign access to Iraqi oil and U.S.
control of the reconstruction effort -- all of which are still governed by
administration policies put into place immediately after the invasion. The
Bush economic agenda favors foreign interests -- American interests -- over
Iraqi self-determination." Juhasz is a Foreign Policy In Focus scholar and
the author of the forthcoming book "The Bush Agenda: Invading the World,
One Economy at a Time."
