Anti-Annapolis protests held in several U.S. cities

Several cities across the U.S. on Tuesday witnessed demonstrations against the Annapolis conference, each demanding that the world leaders gathered behind closed doors address the basic rights of the Palestinian people.

Protests against the summit took place in Annapolis, Boston, Los Angeles, and Charlotte.

At least five groups held protests in Annapolis itself, including Neturei Karta, an orthodox Jewish group that is opposed to the state of Israel for religious reasons and supports the human rights of the Palestinian people to exist on their own land.

Demonstrators say their reason for protesting against the summit is a firmy-held belief that is has more to do with covering the Bush administration's failures in Iraq and Afghanistan than it does with seeking a just solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
