Several groups gathered Saturday afternoon in San Francisco and San Jose to protest a U.S. air strike this week that killed a top general in Iran.
The U.S. drone attack that killed Qassem Soleimani could lead to war and destabilize the entire region, protest organizers said.
"...to protest this outrageous unilateral act of aggression by President Trump and the Pentagon," said Gloria La Riva of the Answer Coalition.
"I'm so worried about what is going to happen to our country and the world because of this escalation," another protester said.
Several groups have signed on for the protests, including the Arab Resource and Organizing Center.
Dozens of similar protests happened around the country for a national day of action.
