Antiwar Protesters Across U.S. Condemn Killing of Soleimani


Thousands of antiwar protesters gathered in communities across the country on Saturday to condemn the American drone strike in Baghdad that killed Iran’s top security and intelligence commander.

In cities and towns across the United States, more than 80 demonstrations were planned to oppose the killing of the commander, Qassem Soleimani, and the Trump administration’s decision to send thousands more troops to the Middle East.

The protests were spearheaded by Act Now to Stop War and End Racism, an antiwar coalition, and Code Pink, a women-led antiwar organization.

“Unless the people of the United States rise up and stop it, this war will engulf the whole region and could quickly turn into a global conflict of unpredictable scope and potentially the gravest consequences,” the coalition said in a statement.
