St. Louis activist plans to lie in front of bus to protest gas prices
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- A preacher and activist says he will lie in front of a Metro bus Friday to protest high gasoline prices and a shortage of construction jobs given to black residents of St. Louis.
The Rev. Cleo Willis has participated in similar acts of civil disobedience in the past. He got in front of a MetroLink train in 2003 and helped shut down Interstate 70 in 1999.
Willis says he expects to be arrested for his rush hour action.
A Metro spokesman said he wasn't aware of the impending protest.
