It was modest as far as demonstrations in this town go. A thousand or so people. Well organized, very orderly. They waved Syrian and U.S. flags, even cheered when playing the U.S. national anthem. Some of it was in Arabic so I’m not sure what it meant.
That’s what I love about Washington. Marathoners blocked roads around Capitol Hill, Syrians demonstrated by the White House and tourists flooded the Tidal Basin to see cherry blossoms. It’s never boring.
