Downtown Buffalo scene of anti-war protest

As thousands of people gathered in downtown Buffalo July 13 for a food festival, Buffalo AntiWar met them with chants calling for an end to U.S. sanctions and threats of war against both Iran and Venezuela. The protesters demanded: “No to another war for oil! No war on Iran, and no U.S. coup in Venezuela! End the sanctions now! Bring all the troops home now!”

They also demanded the government “Stop the war at home — stop the raids and deportations! Close the concentration camps now!”

Participating in the Buffalo AntiWar group were activists from the Erie County Green Party, U.S. Friends of the Soviet People, Buffalo Democratic Socialists of America, Veterans for Peace, the Western NY Peace Center, Workers World Party and the International Action Center.
