Around 100 people gathered on Monday evening at 7:00 p.m. near Monterey Market at the corner of Hopkins and California streets in North Berkeley to make known their opposition to a proposed air attack by the U.S. on Syria.

The protesters organized a candlelit vigil via a campaign. “Congress is likely to vote Tuesday on a proposed air attack on Syria,” the lead organizer wrote. “Every poll shows that the majority of Americans are against this war. Join the vigil and let your voice be heard.”

Berkeleyside contributing photographer Nancy Rubin was there to document the gathering which included a number of children, grandmothers and great-grandmothers, as well as many four-legged friends.
