    No War On Syria


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Chicago photographer jondamaschke observed several hundred protesters on Michigan Avenue in Chicago over the weekend demanding the U.S. stay out of Syria. He made these images using a 1956 Rolleiflex camera and black and white film. "The atmosphere was peaceful, but very serious and focused," he said. "The group was escorted by Chicago police."

    'Personally, I feel that using chemical weapons or not using them isn't the overwhelming issue at hand,' the iReporter said. 'Although it would be devastating to any population, it seems the people of Syria have been in a great need of help for quite some time. If it were to happen, I would not agree with U.S. military action in Syria.'
