Croatian Protesters Urge President Bush to Stay Away


A group of Croatian activists, opposed to President Bush's visit, have signed a huge postcard inviting the U.S. president not to return to their country.

The activists Saturday presented the postcard, which included the phrase "Don't Come Back," to the Croatian Foreign Ministry, after police prevented them from presenting it to Mr. Bush directly. They hope the ministry will send it on to the United States.

Those signing urged Mr. Bush, among other things, to halt activities that hurt the environment, ratify the Kyoto Protocol, withdraw U.S. troops from the Middle East and close down the terrorist detention center at the U.S. Naval base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Some information for this report was provided by AFP, AP and Reuters.
