Protests denounce anti-Muslim movie  
More than 200 people picketed AMC 8 Theaters in Miami November 7 to protest the portrayal of Muslims as terrorists in the new movie The Siege. The demonstration was called by the Islamic Council of North America and the Islamic Centers of South Florida. "I think it is important that people not stereotype different races, creeds, and nationalities," said Mahasin Shahid, one of many high school students to join the action. Similar protests took place across the United States.
