Hundreds protest US plan for Poland missile base

March 24, 2007 19:07

Hundreds of Poles, some declaring US President George W. Bush a terrorist, rallied in Warsaw on Saturday to protest at a US request to place a missile defense shield in their country. Timed to mark the start of the Iraq war, which began four years ago, the rally in Poland's capital brought together socialists, anarchists, pro-Palestinian activists and others angry at their government for giving military support to the US-led invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan. Many said they feared hosting a base would threaten their country's security, rather than protect it, as the US government says.
