Minneapolis, MN – An Anti-war Bannering to “Say no to U.S. war in Syria – no escalation of the endless wars,’ is set for Saturday, April 8, 3 p.m. to 4 p.m., at Hiawatha Avenue and Lake Street, in Minneapolis. The action is being organized by the Minnesota Peace Action Coalition.

On Thursday, April 6, the Trump administration launched air strikes against Syria government military facilities. These strikes, carried out in response to allegations of Syria chemical weapons use, only make the world a more dangerous place.

Per a statement from protest organizers, “U.S. military intervention is not intended to help people, or to resolve internal conflicts of small nations in a humanitarian manner. U.S. intervention only serves the interests of the U.S. elite, who care nothing of Syrian people or the people of the Middle East.”

The statement continues, “The U.S. government has carried out an endless series of wars and interventions for 14 years in Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Libya, Somalia, Afghanistan, Pakistan and elsewhere. This new escalation will only lead to more dead, injured and displaced.”
