Sunday, August 22, 2010

Separated by just a couple of blocks and a vigilant police force, supporters and opponents of the proposed Park51 development rallied simultaneously on Sunday in hopes of influencing the public debate over the Islamic cultural center and mosque. The rally against the project was the more sophisticated of the two events, boasting a stage and sound system from which Bruce Springsteen and various country hits blared. The other rally, supporting Park51, was organized by a coalition of anti-war and socialist groups, but drew unaffiliated individuals and some Muslims as well. Many of them said the opposition to the mosque was borne of Islamophobia.
