HANDS OFF Syria! Emergency Mobilization Against War With Syria

Ho Plaza, Ithaca, New York 14853

Tuesday, April 11, 2017 - 7 PM - 8 PM

Donald Trump’s recent missile attack on Assad regime targets is an act of war. The US government now intends to form an “international coalition” to achieve regime change, a course of events frighteningly similar to those that kicked off the illegal invasion of Iraq. Further military intervention will only fuel the Trump/Pence regime’s larger “America First” project of refugee bans, indiscriminate drone strikes, and domestic state terror. Gather with us on Ho Plaza to say: HANDS OFF SYRIA!
