SALT LAKE CITY Salt Lake City Mayor Rocky Anderson spoke at Monday's anti-Bush protest at Pioneer Park.
Anderson took to the podium following President Bush's speech at the Salt Palace. Anderson spoke in front of more than 500 people gathered at the park in protest of President Bush's visit to Utah.
Anderson told the crowd that people were afraid of what they had to say and they're "not going to take it anymore.''
The mayor ended his speech by saying "it's up to the people to keep speaking up and this is a turning point for our nation here today in Salt Lake City.''
Demonstrators say they're protesting to let Bush know they say “no'' to his agenda, to demand our troops come home now and to show support for Cindy Sheehan. She's a California mother who has been camped outside President Bush's Texas ranch, waiting for the president to meet her face-to-face. Her son was killed in Iraq.
Members from the Gold Star Families for Peace also spoke at the anti-war rally in the park.
