Pin It

Red and Blue in Rochester 

When President Bush visited GreeceAthenaHigh School May 24, the audience was invitation-only, the citizen-panelists were screened, and the presidential speech was scripted.

            But outside in the rain, the mood and the demonstrations --- pro-Bush and con --- were more spontaneous. (Anti-Bush activists, like Bush supporters, did plenty of organizing, however, encouraging demonstrators to show up not only at Greece Athena but also downtown, where they packed FirstUniversalistChurch to protest Bush's push to partially privatize Social Security.)

            Photographs from Greece Athena are by Jared Stehler.
