USA: Anti-War Activists Rally at Trump's DC Hotel to Oppose War With Iran

Nearly 200 anti-war activists rallied in Washington DC, on Saturday, to protest the US airstrike which killed Iranian General Qasem Soleimani on Friday and caused an escalation of tensions with Iran.

Protesters gathered outside the White House and headed toward the Trump International Hotel, carrying banners and chanting “No war on Iran.”

A number of activists addressed the crowds, including leader of ANSWER Coalition Brian Becker and actress Jane Fonda, who stated “Please understand the Pentagon is the biggest institutional user of fossil fuel in the world. That we can’t anymore lose lives and kill people and ruin environments because of oil and fossil fuels.”

“It means not only a violation of everything legal, of everything moral, of everything ethical”, said Becker, adding that “the US bombs Iranians, they say ‘well, they’re Iranians, they are not our people’.”

According to organisers, several rallies took place in 70 US cities in response to Friday’s drone attack.
