Oklahoma activists to demonstrate during Obama visit
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Activists plan to hold a demonstration calling for "Clean Energy and Peace" when President Obama visits Oklahoma.
The Peace House says protesters will call on the president to end the war in Afghanistan and ignore the calls to seek solutions that don't involve the military to Iran's possible nuclear capabilities. The activists also say they want the federal budget's priorities to be refocused on ending wars and serving human needs.
Obama is scheduled to arrive in Oklahoma City Wednesday night before visiting an oil hub near Cushing on Thursday.
The demonstrators plan to protest in downtown Oklahoma City.
