Money's Worth


The organizers of the International Festival for Peace and Civil Liberties want the city of Savannah to pay them $2,000 to cover their losses. They had originally planned to pay for the festival by selling t-shirts and posters. But only 150 people showed up. Still, the organizers say their festival was the reason there was no violence during the G8 summit. The city has already waived $2,100 in permits fees and refunded the maintenance deposit.
