Did someone say the Peace movement was dead? Well, if it ever was, it's now reborn, fully formed, as an anti-Bush, anti-Imperialist, Out of Iraq, Social Justice Movement -- and it had it's coming out party Friday evening in Century City!


L.A. ***RE-PREE-SENTS!!!***

THOUSANDS PROTEST BUSH OUTSIDE WESTSIDE FUND-RAISER!!

In a scene spectacularly reminiscent of this past winter's massive demonstrations -- a crowd of protesters, estimated as high as 10,000, gathered directly across the street from the Century City Hotel (where Bush the Imbecile raised $3.5 million from his fellow plutocrats with help from singer Johnny Mathis and comedian Dennis Miller). The demonstrators, meanwhile, chanted, danced, carried signs, listened to speeches and song from the mainstage, and, most memorably, roared euphorically when a massive pink banner/dress/slip with a special message for W was lowered from a ninth floor balcony of the Century City Plaza Hotel.
