Claremont residents to host vigil for Syria
A candlelight vigil will take place at 7:15 p.m. today on the corner of Indian Hill and Foothill as Claremont residents encourage local Representative Judy Chu to vote against bombing Syria.
Residents are making a statement to the local congresswoman as the debate for authorization for use of military force is expected to go before Congress. The local vigil is one of hundreds taking place across the country this evening as part of a "national day of action" organized by MoveOn.org and several other progressive action groups.
