Anti-War Rally on Devon Ave. Don't Bomb Pakistan!

On October 11, 2008, around 500 people rallied and marched on Devon Ave in Chicago. The Devon Ave. neighborhood is known for its string of Indian and Pakistani restaurants. The Chicago Coalition Against War and Racism organized the rally with leaders of the Pakistani community to be a pre-election anti-war protest, particularly against the hawkish statements about Iran and Pakistan made by both Obama and McCain.
