2 Cincy Anti-Surge Rallies Planned; 6 In NEO

CINCINNATI (TDB) -- President Bush speaks Wednesday night, and anti-war protests are being organized around the country for the next day. He is expected to send more ground troops to Iraq, a change in course that is stirring opposition likely to harden.

Two against-the-surge rally sites for Cincinnati are already set, including a pre-dawn event outside the City Hall and another later that evening in a city park.

The website is interactive. Users can track down rallies within 30 miles of their homes. There are several being put together across Ohio. Six are set in Cleveland, Oberlin and Kent, with the first scheduled for the federal building in downtown Cleveland early Wednesday.

Early on, newspapers and TV did not give much coverage to protestors. But if these rallies draw crowds of any kind, there will be pictures, stories and headlines.
