Heartwarming protests at summit of the powerful:

"protesters opposed to George Bush, the war in Iraq and unfettered capitalism marched through the Chilean capital Santiago just before the American president arrived for a weekend summit of 21 Pacific Rim economies.... at the annual Asia-Pacific Economic Co-operation forum....But most of their outrage was aimed at Bush and the US-led war in Iraq.
Marchers held up posters saying “Bush, you stink”, and "Terrorist Bush”. Some chanted: “Bush, listen: Chile is not for sale!” and “Bush, fascist, thief, murderer!”

Organisers said 40,000 protesters participated in the march...Police put the number at 25,000.... Scattered protests erupted into today in at least four working-class districts around Santiago"
