Columbia Citizens Demonstrate Against Syria Bombings

Apr 10, 2017

Hundreds of drivers honked their horns driving past the corner of Broadway and Providence Friday afternoon as a Peaceworks activist held a sign up that said, “Honk for Peace”.

About 25 people gathered to peacefully demonstrate against President Trump’s Tomahawk missile attack on a Syrian airbase Thursday.

Peaceworks is a non-profit organization that advocates for a peaceful community and opposes some military actions by the United States government.


Central Missourians gathered outside the Boone County courthouse Tuesday night to remember the thousands of victims who lost their lives in the September 11 attacks in 2001.

Mid-Missouri Peaceworks and the Islamic Center of Central Missouri collaborated to put on the event that called for peace and unity. Ruth Schaefer, coordinator of the event, says the candlelight vigil drew about 100 participants, many of whom are involved in local peace organizations.
