Group Protests Big Tobacco In Downtown Indianapolis

Last updated on Thursday, March 26, 2009

(INDIANAPOLIS) - A group of young people demonstrated against big tobacco Wednesday evening in downtown Indianapolis, part of a nationwide protest by the campaign for tobacco-free kids.

The protest called "Kick Butts" accuses tobacco companies of failing to keep a promise not to market cigarettes and other tobacco products to juveniles.

In addition, the movie industry is being asked to attach a mandatory "R" rating to any movie depicting smoking in a positive fashion.
