Protests held across the country as Trump launches missile barrage at Syria

In the early hours of Saturday, April 14, over 100 missiles rained down on Syria, fired by the militaries of the United States, Britain and France. This outrageous violation of Syria's sovereignty, falsely labeled "precision strikes" by the Trump administration, threatened to escalate the country's already devastating civil war and spark a regional or even global conflict.

Protests were held around the world to oppose this act of imperial aggression. Below are photos from protests across the United States, video from a teach-in that took place in Washington, D.C., after the rally and march, and several reports.
