Hundreds of protesters gathered at Portland Place, a few meters from Oxford Circus station, and marched towards Downing Street at the beginning of the afternoon on Saturday.

The demonstration was another attempt to get government members to stop the bombing in Syria, after air strikes were authorized on December 2.

The crowd followed chants criticizing the Prime Minister and leaders of the protest declared his decisions were not representing British people’s interests.

The protest was organized by Stop the War coalition, saying on the page of the event on Facebook that “the decision by MPs to bomb Syria will not make the world a safer place”.

Participants twitted pictures and declarations of support to the demonstration.
See below pictures of the march.
