"Emergency" Anti-War Protests Hit Across America - "Hands Off Syria"

No matter the years of intervention by the Obama administration, and calls for airstrikes by Hillary Clinton, America's leftist 'community organizers' are out en masse nationwide today protesting President Trump's actions in Syria - presumably they find Assad's decision to drop chemical weapons on his people doubtful too...?

Hundreds of protesters gathered in cities across the US to speak out against President Donald Trump’s missile strikes on a Syrian airbase. Despite the demonstrations being mostly peaceful, RT reports there were arrests.

“Emergency” protests were held Friday in at least a dozen US cities. They were largely organized on social media by the Act Now to Stop War and End Racism (ANSWER) Coalition, which called the US assertion that the Syrian government carried out attacks on its own people “unsubstantiated” and demanded an independent investigation.
