As the United States moves closer to possibly launching a military strike against the Syrian government, a few hundred anti-war protesters rallied in Times Square on Thursday.
Demonstrators said the U.S. government has not provided any proof to back up its claims that President Bashard Assad’s regime has used chemical weapons against the Syrian people.
“Just like with ‘weapons of mass destruction,’ lies are being told to justify another war,” a news release announcing the protest reads.
