NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) - Students at Old Dominion University are taking a stance on Syria. Protesters gathered on the main lawn Sunday to speak out against a United States military strike. This comes as President Obama waits for the approval of Congress.
Protesters told WAVY.com they are war weary.
“I am really against the war in Syria that we are already involved in, I think. And I want to do whatever I can to help keep us from escalating it,” said Richard Bennett, a protester.
The protesters handed out anti-war flyers that listed contact information for local representatives.
