Emergency Rally: Stop US Invasion Of Syria

Date: 
Fri, Apr 7, 2017 - 5:00pm to 8:00pm

City:

The Trump administration and their imperialist allies are demanding NATO take "unilateral action" in Syria including removing Assad. This would put the US in direct conflict with Russian forces and Iran. We cannot allow Syria to become another Libya or Iraq. Join us in saying 'no' to NATO's destruction of Syria and imperialism in the Middle East.
