Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. A cold start for this morning. But sunny skies lead to lower 60's this afternoon. Warmer over the weekend, and a slight chance of showers will move back in on Sunday.
Washington protests on Sept. 11
KFDM News - While the nation remembered the victims of the attack, two rallies collided in the nation's capitol.
The colliding Muslims versus motorcycle riders marches may have been bigger than the rallies themselves.
Nation correspondent Kristine Frazao has the story.
"We're marching here today to speak loud enough that we want to be united in courage," said a speaker from a stage.
The the Million Man March Against Fear, formerly the Million Muslim March.
But the Million Man March Against Fear, formerly known as the Million Muslim March turned out closer to a dozen. There was more media than those rallying.
The event was organized to rally against fear, particularly against Muslim people.
"There's a lot of hatred in the country right now toward Muslims who are totally innocent. Not only that, were bombing Muslim countries," said march participant Diana Castill.
Despite the low turnout, the topic spawned other surrounding protests.
For example, a Christian group said it does blame Muslims for the terrorist attacks on 9-11.
"The people who ran into the buildings were Muslim. They were not little old blue haired Presbyterians, said protester Ruben Israel.
But the largest group of protesters came on bikes.
Some asked why protests on this day of remembrance?
AMPAC march organizer Isa Hodge said the day is significant.
"This is the day that they began the fear-mongering propaganda to make the word Muslim synonymous with terrorist, Hodge said.
There were groups of people who were divided, while most use today to come together and remember.
