BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) —Over 50 activists gathered on the Boston Common Saturday to express how they do not want to see the United States send troops to Iran.
Protesters chanted “no war with Iran” at the rally.
Mushgan Haji, an Iranian American, spoke at the rally.
“Iran has 80 million population. The war with Iran is not going to be simple. We’ve been through war with Iraq, we’re still involved there. And Iran war is going to be even more devastating. They’re going to fight tooth and nail. They’re not going to give up their country,” Haji said.
The protest comes after President Donald Trump said he optioned military action after Iran shot down an U.S. military drone over international waters.
In a Tweet earlier on Friday, Trump said the United States was "cocked and loaded to retaliate," but said he decided against a military strike Thursday when he learned that 150 Iranians would die.
