Thank you very much to all who supported Tuesday’s activities for peace and justice for the people of Syria in central London, on International Human Rights Day. At least thirty people took part in the day’s activities in total, including at least 25 that joined the candlelit vigil outside the Syrian embassy.
Our international group of peace pilgrims included several Syrians, as well as individuals from Canada, Colombia, Germany, Ireland, Japan, Kurdistan (Iranian part), Montenegro, Sweden, UK and USA.
Here are some pics and reports:
