(Before It's News)

Milwaukee, WI – 40 demonstrators marched through downtown Milwaukee, April 9, in opposition to Trump’s missile attack against Syria.

The action was organized by the Milwaukee Coalition Against Trump. Demonstrators from a variety of groups rallied outside of Grand Avenue mall before marching through downtown to the federal courthouse building.

Some speakers called for an end to military spending and for money to be spent instead on refugee resettlement, health care and education. Others doubted the justification for the latest bombing against Syria, saying the claim of a gas attack against Syrian civilians by the Syrian army without a shred of proof. “Ever since the Gulf of Tonkin incident in 1964,” Brian Verdin, an anti-war and civil rights activist said, “I have not believed a single thing my government tells me.”

Attendees left the event ready to mobilize if aggressions against Syria or any other nation continues. “There was a common theme in all of our speakers today,” said Maricela Aguilar, co-chair of the Milwaukee Coalition Against Trump. “U.S. intervention in this world is a cancer that brings nothing good to this planet or its people and it must be eradicated.”
