A. M. Mora y Leon from Publius Pundit noticed that after months of hiding, Osama bin Laden was spotted today in the beach town of Mar del Plata, Argentina:
A Nobel laureate and a leftist Bolivian presidential candidate – but not, as had been promised, an Argentine soccer icon – led a march of thousands of anti-U.S. protesters through the streets of this seaside resort city Friday, hours before the inauguration of the Summit of the Americas.
The main personalities at the procession’s head were Evo Morales, the Socialist, and Indian, front-runner in the Bolivian presidential election set for next month, and Argentina’s Adolfo Perez Esquivel, a human rights activist and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1980.
Also in the forefront of the demonstration were Argentine and other Latin American labor leaders, as well as representatives of leftist grassroots organizations from throughout the hemisphere.
Many wore t-shirts with a stop sign reading “Stop Bush,” or one displaying portraits of Che Guevara or Fidel Castro. A few sporting the portrait of Osama bin Laden were also in evidence.
