Participants in Salt Lake City protest against attack on Syria.

Salt Lake City, UT – About 40 people gathered at the Wallace F. Bennett Federal Building, April 15, in downtown Salt Lake City to decry the recent missile attack on Syria. Protesters carried signs reading, “U.S. lies, people die! Stop U.S. wars now!” and “No more blood for oil. Stop the war machine!” Protesters chanted “No justice, no peace! U.S. out of the Middle East!” and “Money for jobs and education, not for war and occupation.”

Monica Moorehead, a leading member of the Workers World Party, spoke at the rally. She urged the crowd to link our struggles at home against capitalism to the struggles of people abroad resisting imperialism.

Brynn Dayton, an organizer with Students for a Democratic Society said, “SDS stands in solidarity with the Syrian people and we demand an end to U.S. aggression in Syria.”
