Protest to the POTUS

As President Barack Obama tours the Hannover trade fair, hundreds of people are demonstrating outside against job cuts at the American technology and consulting company IBM.

Some 200 IBM workers staged a noisy rally on the edge of the fairground Monday to protest against the measures they say will cost 900 jobs in Germany. Demonstrators held up placards reading "Profit, profit, profit, where's the human?" and "We are family? One IBM. Find the mistake.”

A union leader called on protesters to "be loud - maybe the president will hear you."

Obama is in Hannover to promote American business at the world's largest industrial trade fair. IBM Germany didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

This is an interesting way to stage a protest. On the other hand, don't all American companies cut jobs every year, anyway? What is the difference? And would POTUS cares since this is almost business as usual for his country.
