Hundreds of Americans went to protest against the US missile strike on Syria in New York and other US cities, including Washington, San Francisco and Los Angeles, the Daily News New York newspaper reported.

So, in the center of New York, in Manhattan, demonstrators gathered near the Trump Tower skyscraper, owned by the US President, as well as at Union Square.

Protesters held in their hands placards with slogans “Hands off Syria!” and “Money for Jobs, Schools & Healthcare not war in Syria!” They also chanted anti-war slogans.

“US intervention has never brought about peace and democracy in other countries,” the newspaper quoted words of one of the protesters.

The rally at Union Square ended with a clash with police and detention of several protesters. The actions were organized by activists of the ANSWER (Act Now to Stop War and End Racism) Coalition and the International Action Center anti-war groups.

Earlier, it was reported that another rally against the US strike on Syria was held in London, near a residence of British Prime Minister Theresa May. Demonstrators held placards, bearing inscriptions “Shame on Trump! Shame on May!”, “Trump, May, Hands off Syria” and “Stop Bombing Syria.”

There also were rallies against the US missile strike on Syria in other countries, including Bolivia and India.

On the night of April 7, Donald Trump gave an order to fire cruise missiles on the Syrian Ash Sha’irat airbase. According to the US President, a chemical attack was carried out from this airfield on the province of Idlib, of which Washington accuses Damascus, despite the fact that there is no evidence of involvement of the Syrian authorities in the incident. Russian President Vladimir Putin condemned the US military action, describing it as an “act of aggression.”
