Anti-Bush Rhetoric In Argentina

Summit city hit by clashes as Bush struggles to push agenda


Among anti-US activists in Mar del Plata were Nobel Peace Prize holder Adolfo Perez Esquivel, the populist frontrunner in Bolivia's presidential race, Evo Morales, and Argentine football idol Diego Maradona who received a rapturous ovation.

"I love you. Argentina is great. Let's get rid of Bush," Maradona told the cheering crowd.

Earlier, Maradona called Bush "human rubbish" in comments to AFP as he traveled to Mar del Plata from Buenos Aires in a special train.
