President Bush faces tens of thousands of protesters and harsh questioning at the two-day Summit of the Americas in Argentina. The U.S. war in Iraq and the president's free-trade efforts have drawn sharp criticism from union leaders, anti-globalization activists and human-rights groups.

Argentine Nobel Peace Prize winner Adolfo Perez Esquivel, soccer legend Diego Maradona and Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez were among the protesters marching against President Bush.
