Manifestation in Tampa Against Privatization

I prefer the French term Manifestation instead of demonstration, because we made our displeasure manifest on the occasion of George W. Bush's visit to Tampa to hype his approach to pillaging the future. Today in Tampa we manifested our displeasure with George W. Bush's privatization scheme, with approximately 300 Floridians turning out to witness against GWB's looting of the Social Security Trust Fund.

Speakers included Phil Compton of Florida Consumer Action Network (FCAN), John Russell, Democratic opponent for Ginny Brown-Waite in Congress seat FL-5, and several others. After the speeches, the demonstrators marched down toward the Tampa Convention Center to get as close to GWB as the police would allow.
