Bay Area March & Rally in Solidarity w/Mass Protest at Capitol in DC

Time is of the essence. We have been in the streets all over the country. The opposition to a new war is everywhere. This forced the administration to step back from imminent bombings.

But the danger also exists for an even larger war against Syria as Obama seeks to make a deal with pro-war senators and congresspersons like John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Nancy Pelosi and others.

Now is the time for the people to step up pressure on Congress and demand that they vote NO to any resolution authorizing a military attack on Syria.

On Saturday, September 7, people are descending on Congress for a major demonstration as Congress returns to Washington, D.C., and prepares to vote. This demonstration is initiated by a broad ad hoc coalition called the Vote No War Against Syria Coalition. If you or your organization would like to be an endorser of the Sept. 7 demonstration, email votenowaronsyria [at]

Here in the Bay Area, there will be a parallel march and rally in solidarity with the mass protest in Washington DC, beginning at Chelsea Manning Plaza (Embarcadero) at 12 noon. We urge everyone who wants to stop a new war against Syria before it starts, to endorse, help organize and join the demonstration on Saturday, Sept. 7.

Call or email to volunteer.

Chelsea Manning's plaza is formerly and formally known as Justin Herman Plaza, at the Foot of Market, outside the Hyatt Regency. It is by the Embarcadero Muni/BART station.
