Local organization protests La Russa, Pujols appearance at Beck rally in Washington

(KMOV) – A group of St. Louis citizens affiliated with a local organization, M.O.S.E.S. (Metropolitan Organizations Strengthening and Empowering Society), are protesting against the St. Louis Cardinals at Busch Stadium on Saturday at 1 p.m.

The group says it is meeting to “express [its] absolute disappointment with the St. Louis Cardinals and their manager, Tony La Russa and their star player, Albert Pujols.”

M.O.S.E.S. says La Russa and Pujols’ scheduled Saturday appearance in Washington at Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally “desecrates the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.” Dr. King’s famous “I Have a Dream” speech was delivered 47 years ago on the same day and place as Beck’s rally.
