'US, NATO, hands off Syria' – hundreds of New Yorkers during massive protest against US strike on Syria


Hundreds of people protested at New York’s Times Square on Thursday over possible US plans to strike Syria .

"US, NATO, hands off Syria," chanted hundreds of protesters, weaving through thousands of tourists, some carrying pictures of President Bashar Al-Assad, and some just declaring themselves against another US war.
