Update From Century City Protest

by Hieronymous D Wednesday, May. 30, 2001 at 6:50 PM

200-300 Angelenos gathered outside the Century Park Hotel to greet Dubya with a simple two word request: PRICE CAPS.

I zipped from Burbank to Century City and arrived just a little after noon. A couple hundred people had gathered with signs and banners to make some requests of our Commander-In-Thief. The "Ratebusters," an ad-hoc group including members of Global Exchange, carried a large banner demanding that Dubya put some federal price caps on the hyperinflated price of energy (thanks, no doubt, to energy producers based primarily in Texas.) Democrats, Greens, ant-police brutality activists, socialists, the Sierra Club, and the occasional lonely Republican were in attendance. No sightings of Dubya, who was inside the hotel at a luncheon with lots of rich people -- but there was a sign featured in a balcony high up in the hotel that read, "Bush Rocks!" We yelled back at them with a PA, from across the Avenue of the Stars, that in truth, Bush sucks.

Several times protesters tried to carry signs across the wide street to the front of the hotel. These protesters were turned away by police. It is apparently too dangerous to actually get a sign close enough to the President that he might actually be able to read it. But there's not much point in it anyways -- you could hand Dubya a sign with huge block letters, but his poor little brain wouldn't know what to do with it. Little monkey.

I stayed for about an hour. Now I'm back at "work." The turnout wasn't terrible I guess, but come on people. If we're gonna let this fool know just how illegitimate he is, we need THOUSANDS, not hundreds, at every one of Dubya's turns. See you next time.
