12,000 Protest Bush Visit to Germany

HeadlineFeb 24, 2005

In news on President Bush’s visit to Europe… some 12,000 demonstrators took to the streets of Mainz Germany Wednesday to protest the president’s first visit to the country since the invasion of Iraq. Protesters carried signs reading “Bush go home,” and “No. 1 Terrorist.” Police said the protest was one of the largest the city of 300,000 had ever seen. Meanwhile the German newspaper Der Spiegel reports that the White House decided to cancel a Town Hall meeting there because German officials denied Bush’s request that all of the questions asked be approved in advance.
