    In Indianapolis on Friday we will join with 12 activists each with a letter that spells NO WAR ON SYRIA. This will be in conjunction with others carrying signs and passing out flyers. Then, in the days following, we will stand on Interstate Overpass bridges with the same message. We plan to move from overpass to overpass to get out the message to as many people as possible, especially during rush hour in the afternoons. This is a simple, yet effective demonstration that does not require hundreds of people. The numbers will grow the longer we stand our ground. Stopping this war against Syria is game changing as to American Foreign Policy. If we can stop this war, our movement will grow. After all, the majority of the US public is with us this time. Our efforts in the past are the foundation upon the nonviolent revolution we mount right now. Stand and be counted Americans! Turn off the TV, quit reading the Mainstream Media. Start blogging and start producing your own grass roots media, Popular Resistance Newsletter being a wonderful example.

    My name is Diana, I am hosting the rally for San Antonio Texas. This Saturday, August 31, ” No War With Syria” peace movement will take place at 12 noon in Main Plaza. The movement will be rallying, strategizing for mass mobilizations, and as a call for citizens action to take direct actions to stop the U.S. government from escalating its involvement in Syria. Thanks

  • Diana

    Look in your Facebook search bar “No War With Syria” San Antonio. Thanks

    I am from vancouver,canada and i heard that there were lots of protests against war with Syria in various cities across the U.S.
    It is good that the people of England prevented their gov. from attacking Syria.The people in England are not going to let their gov. fool them twice in a row.I hope many people in the usa also take to the streets against their gov. attacking Syria.During the Iraq war the U.S. gov. used depleted-uranium ammunition against the people there.So it is hypocritical for the to condemn Syria for using chemical weapons.Besides they don’t have prove of it.In the 1980s the didn’t mind Saddam Hussein using chemical weapons on the Kurdish population and on the Iranian population during its war with Iran.Anyway the U.S.seems to be isolated now since the people of England prevented its gov. from attacking Syria and the Security Council is not likely to agree on attacking Syria.

    AIPAC and other Pro Israel lobbies are dragging America into another War.. Think about it,, 90% of Americans don’t want War but Obama takes his advice from Feinstein, Levin and others.. They only make up 2% of the population but they control US foreign policy .. During the 2011 AIPAC policy conference one speaker bragged that AIPAC controls foreign policy .. As long as the Zionists control America there will always be war.. Don’t fear what the ADL says, Don’t fear what your bought Christian Zionist minister says .. NAME THE BEAST and demand your country back.. By the way ,, The Communists are embedded with the Zionist freak show ,,Don’t believe me ? Stand up and shout “No more Wars for Israel” and see how far you get ..

    I’m in Dallas. I don’t have (don’t want one) a facebook webpage, hence I can’t log in to search the FB search bar. If anyone knows of anti-war rallies here in Dallas, please post the details here. I will check this page regularly for further information. Tomorrow, Labor Day, provides the ideal opportunity to rally.

  • Sofia

    I’m also in Dallas…I’d also like to know of any anti-war rallies in the Dallas area. Thanks!

  • Randy

    Amen, the truth at last. No more war.

  • Helen

    You can never achieve peace or any sense of it through violence. President Obama is making a huge mistake. We are not dealing with people who are sane and understand or have any empathy with their people. Whether we strike or not this man has no intention in stopping his rampage of killing anyone who he feels is in his way. He makes an example of killing the young and helpless and whether they are killed by gas or bullets makes no difference..death is death….he has no conscience. If this civil war escalates outside it’s borders without our intervention then the world will have to intervene for their own safety too.

  • Pat Clay

    Thank you, for this website and your good work in getting the word out. I’m afraid that Americans are too complacent. Remember, Logic over Authority. We must be vocal about this otherwise this war will render destruction as never seen before. Please, pray for Peace and live peacefully and be vocal stand for peace. Talk about it to everyone! Nobody wants war. Pat : )
