Protests O’Rama

January 20th is inauguration day and the Associated Press is reporting that various groups are planning protests for during the event:

Getting ready for Jan. 20, 2005, various groups are using Web sites, e-mails, fliers and word of mouth to urge thousands of demonstrators to gather in the nation’s capital.

Among planned events are an anti-war rally and three-mile march to the White House, a massive bike ride similar to those that disrupted traffic in New York City before the Republican National Convention, and a “die-in” to remind the nation of more than 1,200 U.S. dead in Iraq.

Through the Web site, organizers are urging demonstrators to leave political buttons and placards at home, join other parade-goers on the afternoon of the inauguration and then, as Bush’s motorcade passes, show the president their backs.

The DC Anti-War Network is organizing a rally and march to the White House on the morning of the inauguration, getting the word out through the Web site, which says, “Bush isn’t going away, and neither are we.”

Yay democracy!

    I wonder if they’ll let commuters run over protestors who are blocking traffic?
