Protesters were chanting, "Trump, Pence, out now."

The anti-war activists were holding banners which read, "No war on Iran! No assassinations! No interventions! No sanctions!", "No more drones," "Fight climate change, not Iran," and "Trump, Pence, out now."

Amanda, one of the protesters, said, "People in this country need to oppose all war and crimes against humanity.”

“But not just that. We here are part of the ‘Out Now’ movement, we are opposing the war against Iran, on the basis that Trump and Pence are fascists they need to be driven out of the white house," Amanda added.

Another protester said, "We are against war with Iran, we have made it clear time and time again, that these wars do not benefit anyone except for that people that can profit of them, and American people are very conscious of that."
