About 350 students chanting "Bush Go Home!" marched through Austria's capital Wednesday to protest a visit by US President George W. Bush, who was attending the US-European Union summit. The students gathered at the Westbahnhof train station and set off on foot to a church square not far from the former imperial Hofburg Palace, where Bush was meeting with top European Union officials. No violence was reported. Led by US "peace mom" Cindy Sheehan, who lost her son in Iraq and energized the anti-war movement last summer with her month-long protest outside Bush's Texas ranch, students waved black flags, blew whistles, banged on drums, and shouted, "Hey, ho, Bush has got to go!" Others carried banners that read, "World's No. 1 Terrorist," and signs that included slogans such as "Mass murderer," "Islam is not the enemy," and "Against war and capitalism."
