NEW YORK — Several hundred activists rallied on Saturday to support an Islamic center proposed near Ground Zero after remembrances were held for nearly 3,000 victims of the Sept. 11 attacks.
They carried signs with such slogans as "The attack on Islam is racism" and "Tea Party Bigots."
They gathered near City Hall in the afternoon and planned to march closer to Ground Zero, where a protest by opponents was planned.
