CodePink, Refuse Fascism Bay Area, and the ANSWER Coalition, joined by dozens of endorsing organizations, called for nationwide protests in response to the U.S. attack on Iran. In San José, the recently formed Anti-Imperialist Coalition moved quickly to mount an action in that city.

Some of the signs at the protest of hundreds read, "Moron with a War On," "Sanctions are Acts of War," "Drone Attacks are War Crimes," and "We Can Not Kill Our Way to Peace." Flags included the signature emblem flag of the Brown Berets and the Mexican national flag.

Charlotte Casey of the San José Peace and Justice Center stated that the United States holds responsibility for escalation to war and added that "people should get out and protest this war because it would be disastrous." The city's Peace and Justice Center has been active since 1957.

The Anti-Imperialist Coalition of San José was created last fall in part to help manage rapid response actions such as last Saturday's. In November, they held a rally outside City Hall to protest the overthrow of indigenous President Evo Morales of Bolivia by a U.S.-backed coup. The Coalition brings together activists from Anakbayan Silicon Valley, Barrio Defense Committee, and the Party for Socialism and Liberation, amongst others.
