Members of Indivisible groups from Lafayette to Lake Charles met tonight in Downtown Lafayette for a "No War with Iran" rally.

Indivisible is a "national network of groups committed to fostering informed and active citizen participation in the democratic process." The local group is Indivisible Acadiana.

The purpose of tonight's rally was to voice concern over tensions in the Middle East.

M. Christian Green, President of Indivisible Acadiana, explained, "We were right here in this same place for our impeachment rally and we thought that was a pretty serious topic on which to have a march, but we didn't know that we would have a President who would be willing to risk plunging us into war with Iran."
