Senator John McCain has a big-ticket fundraiser of 100,000 per person and held at the Fairmount Hotel to add to the public money he’s already using to run for President.
I figured an anti-war protest must have been planned and I was right: there’s one according to KTYU.com:
SAN FRANCISCO — Grassroots campaigners are planning to protest the continuation of the Iraq war Monday outside a fundraising event at a San Francisco hotel for Republican presidential nominee Arizona Sen. John McCain.
Members of No Soldier Left Behind will rally outside the campaign fundraiser and collect petition signatures calling for a responsible end to the war, according to Peace Action West, an organization that fosters civic activism. Protestors will hold signs advocating the end of the war and well being of Iraqis and Americans in the region.
“Sen. McCain is here raising money in support of an Iraq policy that will be a continuation of the president’s fail strategy,” Peace Action West’s Executive Director Jon Rainwater said. “Americans and Iraqis can’t afford four more years of mistakes, so we are insisting that the next president bring a responsible end to the war in their first year.”
The protestors will assemble in front of the Fairmont hotel at 6:30 p.m.
