08/02/2004
Billionaires for Bush About 100 Bush protestors gathered at the David Lawrence Convention Center on Saturday, July 30th to protest George Bush, who was attending a fundraiser in the building. Chanting John Kerry's name and "Liar, Liar, Bush Retire," they drew cheers and honks from passing motorists. Among the groups attending the protest was the Billionaires for Bush limo tour. [
link]Billionaires for Bush is a do-it-yourself street theater and media campaign that uses humor to speak out the truth about the Bush administrations disastrous economic policies. This was the first stop on their "Get on the Limo" tour, the Billionaires newest and most hands-on campaign, that is sweeping through battleground swing states putting a local spotlight on the concerns of the very rich.

Pittsburgh Indymedia spoke with several protestors, including Bill Neel, who was arrested in 2002 for protesting Bush outside of a designated "free speech" zone. [Audio]Audio
