Demo DC - Apr 16, 2011
Anti-Assad demonstration that took place near the Syrian Embassy in Washington, D.C. More than 600 protesters attended. This marks the largest such protest to take place outside Syria in decades. Syria's diaspora communities are breaking the barrier of fear outside as well. Many protesters later walked all the way to the White House despite the rain to get their message to the Obama Administration, which is: The Syrian people want a free Syria, they want to topple the regime because Assad is a criminal not a reformer.
