Muslims from the New York City area joined hundreds of others March 6 to “Say no to anti-Muslim bigotry” with an “I am a Muslim too” rally in the Times Square area. The protest anticipated that Rep. Peter King’s Congressional hearings, set to open on March 10, plan to scapegoat Muslims and allegedly “examine the threat of Islamic radicalization.”

Among those speaking was Sara Flounders of the International Action Center and the United National Antiwar Coalition. She linked defending Muslims against prejudice to anti-war efforts and invited the audience to the April 9 anti-war protest in New York.
