Thousands protests on the streets of London against British government involvement in Syrian War

LONDON: Thousands took to the streets in London on Saturday in protest against the UK’s military intervention in Syria. The Anti-war demonstrators also demanded an end to other British military campaigns abroad. Activists and supporters of the Stop the War Coalition gathered outside Broadcasting House at Portland Place before marching to Downing Street. “Stop the war” as well as “Boycott ISIS,” were also seen among the banners in the crowd. When the rally reached Downing Street several speakers took the stage to condemn the government’s decision to participate in yet another armed conflict, which is the fourth intervention since the anti-terror campaign began in Afghanistan in 2001. Airstrikes by the UK in Syria were approved by a contentious vote of 397 to 223 in favor of military intervention on December 2.(News Wire)
