Description

Hundreds Protest As Bush Visits MLK Tomb As hundreds of protesters shouted objections, President Bush laid a wreath Thursday at the tomb of Martin Luther King Jr. on a visit to mark what would have been the 75th birthday of the slain civil rights leader. The president bowed his head in respect at the tomb as police worked to block protesters who pushed past barricades. Two people were arrested. Bush, arriving from New Orleans on a day devoted to building support among black voters, was greeted by hundreds of demonstrators. They were beating drums, chanting "Go home, Bush" and waving signs saying, "War is not the answer" and "Bush no more in 2004."
