Walpole Peace Protest Held Over Strike In Baghdad

WALPOLE, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Peace protests are being held across the country today following the killing of Iranian Major Gen. Qasem Soleimani.

On Saturday in Walpole, the group Walpole Peace and Justice held a protest on the Common.

"This is so reckless and it is catastrophic, because if Iran now retaliates there's a risk we can get into a full-blown war," event organizer Phillip Zacharowski told WBZ's Shari Small.

"Both Bush and Obama had the chances to take him out too and chose not to, because they realized it just can escalate problems in the region," peace protester Sally Rose said.

Marine Corps. veteran Tom Brown organized the counter protest across the street. He says he came out to support President Trump and "the decisions he's making to protect the United States."

"The general that was killed from Iran is directly linked to over a thousand military deaths and supported terrorism throughout the world," Brown said. "I absolutely support the president's move."
