Hundreds of anti-war protesters marched in downtown Los Angeles on Saturday, April 14, against US military action in Syria.
The local NBC news affiliate said the protest took place around Persheng Square and was organized by the International Action Center. It said protesters were concerned over the potential of yet another war in the Middle East.
A much smaller and more subdued protest also took place in a San Francisco plaza, where the local NBC news affiliate said such protests had become a tradition among a coalition of anti-war groups following every major military action by the US.
Nearby, a group of half dozen anti-war protesters from the group 'Code Pink' held signs outside the home of House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senator Dianne Feinstein, both of whom represent the San Francisco Bay Area.
