This video from London, England says about itself:
Protesters rallied outside Downing Street on Wednesday (August 28) against possible British military intervention in Syria, as Prime Minister David Cameron recalled parliament to discuss the response to the alleged use of chemical weapons.

Syria crisis: Do not send our troops into Syria, say British public
28 Aug 2013 09:18
The British public do not think the UK should deploy troops to Syria, according to a new poll.
The YouGov survey found almost three-quarters of Brits are against sending our soldiers to the war-torn country, on the day David Cameron will chair a meeting of the National Security Council to decide how the UK should respond to a suspected chemical weapons attack in Damascus last week.
Downing Street announced yesterday that Britain’s armed forces were drawing up contingency plans for possible military action, and the United States has said it is “ready to go” if military action is given the go-ahead.
But the survey found that 74% of Britons oppose sending British troops in to Syria, and 50% would be against attacking with long range missiles from ships.
42% oppose enforcing a no-fly-zone, and 61% are against sending full-scale weapons including tanks.
40% said they were against Britain becoming involved at all.
