Candlelight vigil against military force to be held Monday night
Residents of Claremont will hold a candlelight vigil at Indian Hill and Foothill Boulevards at 7:15 p.m. today, Monday September 9 to urge Congresswoman Judy Chu to vote against bombing Syria.
The local vigil is part of a national day of action organized by MoveOn.org, CREDO Action, Progressive Change Campaign Committee (PCCC), and Win Without War. Similar vigils will take place in nearly one hundred cities across the country on Monday.
At the vigil, local residents will urge Rep. Chu to vote against the Authorization for Use of Military Force resolution expected to be debated soon in Congress.
