New Yorkers angry with Bush
Many New Yorkers are apparently unhappy with President Bush, or at least more expressive in their dissent. The state reportedly leads walkouts and protests opposing the Bush Administration in the US. And another protest was held on Wednesday, in an attempt to drive George W. Bush out of office. It was one of 180 countrywide actions planned for the same day. Chicago, Atlanta, Washington and Seattle also joined the mass action.
New Yorkers use their voices and feet, in an attempt to force US president George W. Bush to resign. Organized by "The World Can't Wait" group walkouts, rallies and marches were held throughout the city.
Debra Sweet, National Coordinator, "The world can’t wait, drive out the bush regime", said, "We have to build a movement expressing the interests and intentions of millions and millions of people in this country, to create a political situation where Bush has to leave office."
Estimates on the number of protesters at Union Square were put at between 3,000 and 5,000. Many of the demonstrators were school and college students, expressing their emotion for all to see.
Following the Union Square rally, protesters marched into Times Square, where they gathered outside the US army recruitment center.
Several youths were arrested during the march, on charges of truancy.
