(Before It's News)

Tampa, FL – Around 15 activists and community members gathered to oppose U.S. intervention and aggression against Syria. The protest was in response to the launching of 59 Tomahawk missiles on Shayrat Airbase as ordered by Donald Trump. This attack is the first time the U.S. has directly attacked the Syrian Arab Republic, but is not the first time the U.S. has attempted to overthrow the Syrian government.

“Today we are here to protest against the heinous violence President Trump has enacted against Syria, and to stand in solidarity with the refugees the war has created,” said Jessica Schwartz, a member of Tampa Anti-War Committee. Chants included “Hands off Syria,” “Money for jobs and education, not for war and occupation” and “Hey, hey, let’s be clear; refugees are welcome here!”

The Tampa Anti-War Committee will continue to protest U.S. war in Syria.
