Hundreds of protesters demonstrated in San Francisco on Saturday against a possible war with Iran. Activists marched with banners against Donald Trump and chanted anti-war slogans.
The event was organised by local activist groups including Arab Resource and Organization Center (AROC) and Bay Resistance.
“We are here to show that the people of the Bay Area oppose further war in the Middle East. We oppose the recent military aggressions the Trump administration has chosen to take against Iran. We opposed troops involved in Iraq. We want all troops out of Iraq. We want the repeal the AUMF which allows the president of the United States to act in the Middle East with impunity, to commit acts of violence and war without any accountability to the people,” said Wassem Hage, an activist from AROC.
Anti-war activists have been protesting in several cities since tensions escalated between the US and Iran after the killing of Quds Force General Qassem Soleimani in a drone strike on January 3.
