Thousands of protesters staged rallies on Wednesday across the United States against the policies of President George W. Bush, including the war in Iraq and response to Hurricane Katrina.
The World Can't Wait organization, a coalition of groups formed recently to stage the rallies, used the anniversary of Bush's re-election to call for his resignation in protests that took place in cities including New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, San Francisco and Chicago.
In New York, students walked out of schools and colleges and joined other supporters as thousands rallied in Union Square before marching nearly 2 miles to Times Square along avenues lined with police on motorbikes.
"The Bush regime is out to remake the world with its policies," said organizer Sunsara Taylor. "From the war in Iraq to environmental policies to the remaking of the Supreme Court ... we are staring down the barrel of fascism in this country."
Olivier Martineau, 16, walked out of his high school with 17 others to join the march. "I am strongly against the war in Iraq," he said. "We are always sticking our noses into other people's business when we don't even realize our battles at home."
Student Tuarian Wolfe, 19, carried a sign reading "No Iraqi ever left me on my rooftop to die," to protest the slow response to help poor people stranded in New Orleans by Hurricane Katrina.
"This war is now resonating with youth with the military recruiting in their high schools and they know they are not far away from danger," she said.

Back in the day...we would have been given detention for walking out of school like that.
thousands of students from high schools and colleges wer encouraged to hit the streets for this BS. The schools should be fined for allowing them to skip class for such tripe.
Well, I was pretty much an idiot politically too when I was sixteen.
If I grew out of it, there's a chance some of these morons will too.
The young ones, I mean.
looks like the same recycled faces from the last protest
Sheer brilliance. And to think this little smartie pants is only 19 and already able to come up with such a profound statement.
On the other hand, MILLIONS of AMERICANS (the people that make America great) had to go to work on Wednesday.
Welcome to Free Republic!
Thanks! But actually I'm a retread.
I guess we will have to suffer these fools anytime there's a republican president. four years of demonstrating after losing the election.
By my math, that would leave hundreds of millions NOT protesting...
While the dead can be counted on to show up for elections consistently and vote liberal, they never seem to have the energy to make it to these loser-fests...
Whew, for a second there I thought I missed a protest about unprotected, unmonitored, unsupervised open borders by FReepers.
These losers are the same ilk that spawned Neville Chamberlin back in hitler's heyday. Totally irrational. Totally unable to deal with reality...looking for someone to blow smoke up their ass.
Welcome to Free Republic
if you're not a recycled FReeper with a new name and registration, you have, at long last, found your home!
Welcome to FR.
You beat me to it. I actually just looked up the current American population and it's over 295 MILLION, so at least about 295 million OTHER Americans stayed home, went to work or school or the beach or shopping or the movies and DIDN'T participate in some stupid "protest" or "demonstration.
