Local rallies held against Syria strike

COLONIE -- Groups gathered across the Capital Region Monday evening to speak against military action in Syria. The rallies were part of a nationwide protest to convince leaders to vote against a bill to send missiles into the region in response to alleged use of chemical weapons.

If it was in fact chemical weapons, that was a violation of international law so I think an international body should take control of the situation, such as the UN or World Court, said Dan Wilcox of Veterans for Peace as he stood in Delmar with about two dozen others.


Similar gatherings were held in Hudson and Saratoga Springs. A large group gathered in Colonie along Central Avenue to raise awareness.

I don't care what's going on with politics and stuff. I've just seen 100-something kids dying and I dont think US should be in this. Its only going to get worse and worse, said Ameen Nagi.

President Obama is spending the first part of the week convincing Congress and the American public military action is needed, but it comes as Russia announced it may have worked out a deal to have Syria turn over chemical weapons.

I think it is important for the international community and the United States to stand up and say, This cannot happen, said Obama. If in fact we're able to achieve that kind of agreement that has Russia's agreement and the Security Councils agreement, then-- my central concern in this whole episode-- is a result.  It doesn't resolve the underlying terrible conflict in Syria and, you know, that I've always said is not amenable to a military solution.

A vote on military action was scheduled for Wednesday, but late Monday evening, Sen. Harry Reid announced the Senate would delay voting until later in the week to allow the President more time to make his case. The House said it would not vote until it passed the Senate.
