BELLINGHAM, Wash. - A local anti-war group will be protesting Saturday against U.S. military action in Syria.

Janet Marino with Whatcom Peace and Justice Center says they want to get as many people as possible to contact their representatives to urge them to vote ‘no’ to a military strike.

The group believes the Obama administration should wait for the United Nations’s investigation results before authorizing a disciplinary strike on Syria.
