Protesters urge Bush to "go away"

APPROXIMATELY 50 people gathered to protest while George Bush was making his speech in Hviezdoslavovo square.

They were standing at the opposite end of the square from where President Bush was holding his address.

The anti-Bush demonstrators were gathered directly in front of the police.

Most of the protesters were young and had there faces covered by scarves. They tried to interrupt Bush's address by blowing whistles and crying “terrorist, terrorist”.

The protesters held aloft banners. Some urged Bush to "Go Away".

The demonstrators were completely outnumbered by fully-equipped riot police. The forces of law and order formed a ring three-deep to prevent the protesters from getting closer to the president. However, they did not try to stop the protest.
