Some 400 people from a group called "Occupy AIPAC" planned to protest outside of AIPAC's annual policy conference in Washington DC on Sunday during the speeches of President Shimon Peres and US President Barack Obama. The protesters will urge Obama to engage in diplomacy with Iran.

The protesters said in a press release that they intend to spell out the words "NO WAR ON IRAN" in giant letters, set up mock checkpoints and an "Annexation Wall."

The group stated that it is gathering to urge Obama to reject "the Israeli administration’s push for war on Iran and insist on respect for Palestinian rights."

Occupy AIPAC intends to protest throughout the groups policy conference which begins Sunday and was scheduled to continue through Tuesday.
