Fremont's Afghan community, the largest in the U.S., took to the streets on Sunday, May 8, to demand changes in the U.S. military tactics being used against insurgents in Afghanistan. The protests came after American forces received criticism for the deaths of at least 120 civilians, including children.

They carried signs that said "no more casualties!"  Afghan immigrant Haider Jabbarkhea called on President Obama to "talk to the people to find some solution to this problem".

KTVU Channel 2 news coverage of the protest can be seen here.
