Town Hall Forum on Syria

Connecticut Congressman John Larson was among the first members of Congress to hold a public forum for constituents in the aftermath of President Obama’s announcement that he intends to seek congressional approval for a strike on Syria. On Monday afternoon residents packed into a meeting room at the West Hartford town hall where they could get up and voice their opinions.

Sossi Derian of West Hartford grew up in Aleppo, Syria, and came to the United States in the 1960's with her family. She was one of many that voiced their opinion to Congressman John B. Larson during a community forum on Syria following President Barack Obama's announcement that he would seek congressional authorization for military action. She is against him going over there to bomb, she does not beleive there is enough evidence to prove that Syrian President Bashar Assad is responsible for the chemical weapons that have been used recently and from her own direct information from people she knows over there it is the rebels that are the cause of the unrest.
