Dozens of NJ residents join anti-Bush protest across George Washington Bridge

(08/29/04) FORT LEE - Police officers with the Fort Lee and Port Authority departments escorted anti-President Bush marchers through New Jersey into New York.

The protest began on the corner of Lewis Street and Linwood Avenue at Constitution Park. The marchers then traveled to the city across the George Washington Bridge.

More than 200 people in their 20's marched as part of the non-partisan group Bergen Action Network to protest the Bush administration and its policies at the Republican National Convention.

While the protesters may not agree with the Bush agenda, it does not necessarily mean they will be voting for Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry. They say their main points are their change of policy messages.

More protests are expected as the Republican National Convention continues this week.
