Presidential visit a magnet for demonstrators

NEW LONDON, Conn. --National peace groups and those supporting the president's policies in Iraq are planning to converge on New London Wednesday to demonstrate as President Bush delivers his commencement address at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy.
The peace groups, organized by sponsors Veterans for Peace and Act Now to Stop War & End Racism (A.N.S.W.E.R.), plan an all-night vigil Tuesday at the Soldiers and Sailors Monument downtown.
The groups then plan to march from downtown to a rally at the academy gates Wednesday that is expected to include speeches by parents who have lost children in Iraq.
They will be joined by scientists from colleges in Connecticut, who plan to wear academic robes and carry signs protesting the Bush Administration's science policies.
The Raging Grannies and Code Pink, women war protesters known for their pink feather boas, also plan to demonstrate.
A national pro-war group, Gathering of Eagles, also plans a demonstration.............

(a PRO war group? who is PRO war? think about it)
