Protesters Brave Cold to Send Bush Message

St. Louis, MO – More than a hundred people gathered in South St. Louis Wednesday to protest President Bush's economic and foreign policies.

The group was kept away from the incoming motorcade route about two blocks from the trucking business, J.S. Logistics, where Bush spoke.

The Missouri Progressive Vote Coalition's John Hickey says the President should hear what his detractors have to say.

One man was arrested for protesting too far from the designated area, and freezing temperatures sent most of the protestors back to their cars shortly after the President arrived.
