Local police enforcement monitored the situation. Police were present throughout the day to help ensure peaceful protest. Several warnings were issued, but no arrests were made.
ACT for America organized the protest rallies across the country. ACT was the main protest group over the weekend, claiming Shariah law was 'incompatible with western democracy and its freedoms' along with Muslims wanting Shariah to replace American law.
Protests were held during an open house. The Islamic Center of Greater Cincinnati held an open house as a part of the "Know Your Neighbor" effort to help the community grow.
The Islamic Center took care of the protesters. Water and snacks were provided by the Islamic center for the protesters despite the messages they aimed towards the center.
Anti-Islamic and Shariah law protestors demonstrated Saturday at the main enterance of the Islamic Center of Greater Cincinnati in West Chester Township and were met by self-described antifacist counter-demonstrators. MICHAEL D. CLARK/STAFF
