Emergency Rally: NO WAR on Syria!

Friday, April 7, 6-8pm, Boston Common, Boston, Massachusetts

The United States has just launched air strikes in Syria. We will NOT be dragged into another war in the Middle East! War will not bring us “peace and harmony,” as Trump says. We’ve seen what the War on Terror has brought us for the past 16 years–more terrorists, more refugees, more dead children, women, and families. War is good for politicians and for weapons manufacturers, but not for the rest of us and we know that! We must act NOW!

Without Donald Trump’s tax returns, Americans are in the dark about his conflicts of interest, his foreign entanglements, and whether he even pays any taxes at all. We’re protesting to remind him that he works for us now. We encourage anybody and everybody who demands to see Trump’s tax returns to join us.
