Dozens rallied in downtown San Jose Sunday to voice their concerns about the violence in Egypt.
They hoped to show their opposition to the coup (the overthrow of Egyptian President Mohamed Morsy by the military).
Organizers said they are fighting for democracy and peace.
"What we're here today to do is to say we want the process. We don't want someone to come up and just destroy it or disperse it just because they think I'm not qualified to express ourselves," protester Ahmed Ragab said.
Organizers said they are also concerned about the information coming out of Egypt, including the death toll and the number of people injured.
They said they believe it is much higher than what is currently being reported.
