There was a downtown rally Saturday afternoon to protest what organizers say is Washington's push for war against Iran. The Chicago Coalition against War and Racism aimed their protest at both presidential candidates who they say have supported a first-strike military option by the Israeli government against Iran.

Saturday's march was one of more than a dozen held nationwide.

The marchers' route took them past the Cook County Republican Headquarters, Senator Barack Obama's campaign office, and the Israeli consulate.
