Hundreds of people took to the streets in Washington on Saturday to protest against the upcoming NATO ministerial meeting in the US capital, ONAreports citing Sputnik.

"We are calling for a peaceful mass mobilisation against this year’s NATO Summit in Washington, DC, on Saturday, March 30. Additional actions will take place at the opening of the NATO meeting on April 4", the Anti-NATO Mobilisation steering committee said in a press release.

People of all ages and various nationalities are taking part in the rally. They are also trying to bring attention to the ongoing crisis in Venezuela.

Protesters gathered at the city’s Lafayette Park in front of the White House at around 1:00 p.m. local time (17:00 GMT) holding up signs reading "Unite to Fight NATO’S Racist Wars", "Hands off Venezuela", "NATO Bombs=Slavery in Libya," "NATO Killed One Million IRAQIS", "Shut Down NATO’S War Crimes", "No War on VENEZUELA", "US Sanctions Caused Venezuela’s Crisis", and "US Out of Latin America And Caribbean".
