Main organizer Eric Faden, an FIU political science major and vice chairman of the Miami-Dade Libertarian Party, says they'll also be protesting Obama's refusal to shut down the Guantanamo prison camp, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the United States' involvement in conflicts in Libya, Syria, and Pakistan.
"The anti-war left disappeared when Obama got elected,"Faden says. "Yet he killed more people in 2011 than the mass murderers behind the massacres at Sandy Hook Elementary and the movie theater in [Aurora,] Colorado."

Faden spent Thursday afternoon buying Obama, Guy Fawkes, and Hillary Clinton masks, as well as other props for the two-day protest, which he is organizing with the Libertarian group Young Americans For Liberty.
He says protesters will gather at Graham Center lawn around 10 a.m. Monday and stay until 6 p.m. They will follow a similar schedule on Tuesday. "It's open to the public," he says. "So whoever wants to join us can."
