(Boulder-AP) -- Only a few dozen protesters gathered outside the University of Colorado auditorium where Palestinian leader Hanan
Ashrawi is speaking Saturday night.
The scene was a stark contrast to her speech in Colorado Springs Thursday. That appearance at Colorado College drew hundreds of demonstrators from both sides of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Ashrawi was formerly spokeswoman for P.L.O. leader Yasser Arafat.
She is founder of the Palestinian Initiative for the Promotion of Global Dialogue and Democracy.
