Approximately 300-400 protesters crowded Pioneer Courthouse Square Wednesday as part of a nationwide demonstration on the one-year anniversary of President George W. Bush’s re-election.
The World Can’t Wait, an organization whose self-proclaimed goal is to remove Bush from office, organized a day of action in which protesters gathered in over 200 locations around the United States.
Protest organizers said they plan to hold another demonstration when Bush gives his State of the Union address.
