"March Aims to Protest Voting Rights Revamp"

See this report from Atlanta, which begins: "Saying the protections of the 1965 Voting Rights Act could be in jeopardy, the Rev. Jesse Jackson announced plans for a 'massive' protest march in Atlanta on the anniversary of the law's signing. Jackson said the Aug. 6 event will feature a march from the tomb of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. to Atlanta's Centennial Olympic Park and is inspired by concerns that President Bush will seek to alter the 40-year-old law that protects voting rights among minorities and others."
