Thousands rally for, against mosque on tragic day
by Joe Walker, Douglas Montero, Amber Sutherland, and Kathianne Boniello
Thousands of rowdy protestors with dueling agendas converged on Lower Manhattan today, using the spotlight of 9/11 as a showcase for the Ground Zero mosque debate.
Both sides drew large, boisterous crowds with about 3,000 pro-mosque demonstrators marching from City Hall to the Federal Building and 2,500 anti-mosque protestors rallying near the controversial Park Place site of the proposed Islamic Center.
No arrests have been reported, though things got heated when several college kids agitated a group of anti-mosque demonstrators.
