June 21, 2004


On June 21, 2004 reported, "A group of leading Irish religious representatives came out in support of protests against the forthcoming visit of U.S. President George Bush to Ireland. Christian, Buddhist and Muslim representatives, together with the NGO Peace Alliance, have planned a number of peaceful protests for this weekend. They are calling on Irish people to join their demonstrations taking place in Dublin and at Dromoland Castle, where the U.S. President is staying. Fr Frank Brady said: 'George Bush is portraying the American people as dishonest, deceitful and untrustworthy. I don't think that that is fair. I think we need to protest and raise our voices.'"
