A big, noisy demonstration met President Barack Obama when he visited the Buffalo, N.Y., campus of the State University of New York on Aug. 22. The crowd showed opposition to Obama’s stand on fracking, the Keystone XL pipeline and U.S. intervention in the Middle East and North Africa — and called for an end to drone attacks. Protesters also raised other critical issues, demanding rights for immigrants and Native Americans, freedom for Pvt. Chelsea Manning, full reproductive rights and health care for women, an end to executions, and more.
