Berkeley Feeling Economic Backlash After Anti-War Resolution

The city of Berkeley is already feeling a backlash after a resolution asking the Bush administration to end the attack on Afghanistan.

Rachel Rupert is chief executive officer of the city´s Chamber of Commerce. She says several large conferences have canceled bookings. Restaurants are reporting reservations are being canceled.
