Boston Common rally backs strike vs. Syria

About 50 demonstrators gathered on Boston Common Sunday, saying the size of their group should not belie its sentiment: The US military must strike against Syria’s regime in response to widespread reports of a devastating chemical weapons attack.

Carrying Syrian and American flags, the group hoped to rally support for its cause, which stood in stark opposition to a separate protest held in Boston the day before. There is a burgeoning wave of national activism against a US-led intervention in the conflict, with other groups attempting to persuade President Obama and Congress not to get involved.
