ANAHEIM, California—More than 200 spirited protesters demonstrated here April 24 in solidarity with protests in Syria against the rule of President Bashar al-Assad. “The only way to have justice is to get rid of the regime,” said Tarif Hawasly, one of the protesters. “The victory will come from within the Syrian people.” Participants included Syrian Americans as well as immigrants from Afghanistan, Egypt, Jordan, Libya, Palestine, and Yemen. Some had joined a protest to end Moammar Gadhafi’s tyrannical regime in Libya the day before.
