Stop Trump's War on Syria

When: Friday, April 7, 2017, 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm
Where: Park Street Station • Tremont & Park Streets • Boston

No War on SyriaOn Thursday night, Donald Trump attacked Syria with over 50 Tomahawk missiles. We don’t know who caused the chemical attack in Idlib province, but U.S. bombs will not help the situation. The Syrian civil war must be solved by diplomacy, not more bombs.

A new U.S. war against Syria’s government is not the answer to the catastrophic Syrian civil war.
