Bush Inauguration Draws Protests in Downtown Dallas
While the inauguration pomp and ceremony was going on in Washington people in downtown Dallas heard the throbbing percussion from "Drums, Not Guns." The activists were pounding out their protest from the Kennedy Memorial downtown.
That evening, 200 peace activists joined for a mock funeral with caskets representing free press, the Bill of Rights, and American democracy.
Alan Oaks set up "Dallas Mourns" to carry out the event. Lon Burnam of the Dallas Peace Center was the main speaker.
