Protesters outside Bush library event in Dallas

DALLAS (AP) - About 200 anti-war and immigration reform protesters gathered peacefully near the Dallas dedication site of the George W. Bush Presidential Center.

The demonstrations were restricted Thursday morning to a zone cordoned off by barricades and separated from the center by a highway.

The protesters included ex-talk show host Phil Donahue, who co-produced and was executive director of the anti-war documentary called "Body of War" about an injured Iraq veteran.

Coleen Rowley of Apple Valley, Minn., wore an orange jumpsuit and shouted "Close Guantanamo," a reference to the U.S. detention facility for suspected insurgents. Some 30 protesters wore signs listing the names of soldiers and others who died in wars launched by the Bush administration.

Dozens of immigration reform demonstrators wearing black clothing and white masks marched on a sidewalk.
