Mayan activists purify site of Bush's 'bad spirits'

Mayan activists in Guatemala held a ceremony on Thursday to purify an ancient Mayan capital of President Bush's "bad spirits."

Bush visited Iximche earlier this week as part of his five-nation tour of Latin America. He encountered protests everywhere he went, with indigenous people criticizing his views on immigration, the global economy and war.

"Today is a special day on the Mayan calendar," said Jorge Morales, the director of the Young Mayan Movement, the Associated Press reported. "That's why we are taking advantage to do this special event to clean and get rid of the bad spirits and re-establish this sacred place's harmony."
