Video: Baltimore Activists Demand: “No U.S. War With Syria!”

By BillyClub - Posted on 31 August 2013

On late Friday afternoon, August 30th, peace and justice activists held an anti-war demonstration. Their message was clear and cogent: “No U.S. war with Syria!” The rally took place at Centre and North Charles Streets at the base of the Washington Monument, in the historic Mt. Vernon District. The activists insisted there was no clear evidence that Syria had perpetrated any “chemical attack” on its own people. They also cautioned against any rush to judgement in this controversial matter, especially in light of the 935 serial lies and deceptions, via the Bush-Cheney Gang, which led the U.S. into the disastrous and costly Iraq War. One of the fears expressed by an activist at the rally was that U.S. missile strikes will only trigger more misery for the Syrian people and for the over one million refugees, about half of them Christians, who have been residing there in order to escape the horrors of the Iraq War. Speaking on camera are activists Stephen Roblin, Charley Cooper and Sharon Black.
