This protest took place in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida June 5th and 6th 2005. Although the protest was inspired by George W. Bush attending the OAS meeting taking place in South Florida, the protesters had many different agendas; some of the protesters were even there in support of Bush.

The Organization of American States (OAS), or, as it is known in the three other official languages, (OEA), is an international organization, headquartered in Washington, D.C., United States of America. Its members are the thirty-five independent states of the Americas.

The notion of closer hemispheric union in the American continent was first put forward by Simón Bolívar ("The Liberator") who, at the 1826 Congress of Panama, proposed creating a league of American republics, with a common military, a mutual defense pact, and a supranational parliamentary assembly. This meeting was attended by representatives of Gran Colombia (comprising the modern-day nations of Colombia, Ecuador, Panama, and Venezuela), Peru, the United Provinces of Central America, and Mexico, but the grandly titled "Treaty of Union, League, and Perpetual Confederation" was ultimately only ratified by Gran Colombia. Bolívar’s dream soon foundered with civil war in Gran Colombia, the disintegration of Central America, and the emergence of national rather than continental outlooks in the newly independent American republics.
