DAVIS — Protesters gathered in Davis Friday to speak out against Thursday’s military airstrike ordered by President Donald Trump.

The ANSWER Coalition called for the emergency protest Thursday, following the attack on the Syrian government airbase.

Organizers from the ANSWER Coalition called out to the nation, asking that all opposed to the military strike join together starting Friday and continue demonstrations through the weekend. An additional protest was held in Sacramento at the Federal Building and more were expected in Washington.

A small group of protesters gathered around 5:30 p.m. at Central Park in Davis then moved on to the office of Congressman John Garamendi.

Many of those present say that the answer to the chemical weapons attack on Syrian civilians should not have been additional attacks. They claimed Trump’s actions were the start to a new war of aggression in the Middle East.
