Protesters Rally in the Streets of Phoenix on May 27, 2008

By Jonathan McNamara

Protesters gathered at the Cesar Chavez Memorial Plaza Tuesday clutching signs that asked for peace, demanding that troops be brought home and labeling President Bush and John McCain fascists to demonstrate against Bush's McCain fundraising visit here.

The sound of drums and bagpipes ricocheted across downtown as the protesters marched to the Phoenix Convention Center and finally to directly outside Herberger Theater, where they found Bush and McCain (actually protesters wearing crude masks) in bed and on their "honeymoon."
