Anti-war protesters begin march to Walker’s Point

KENNEBUNKPORT, Maine -&nbspA few dozen anti-war protesters in Kennebunkport marched to Walker’ s Point, where President Bush is spending the weekend at his parents’ seaside home.

The number of demonstrators who set out on the 2-mile march Saturday under overcast skies was far fewer than the 1,700 who gathered in the same location last summer when Bush met with Russia’ s Vladimir Putin.

This year’ s march was led by several activists who carried a giant dove made from white bed sheets. During the march, protesters chanted, “No justice, no peace. U.S. out of the Middle East.”

Bush is attending a wedding during his three-day stay in Maine, which could mark his last visit to Kennebunkport as a sitting president.
