Opponents and supporters of U.S. military intervention in Syria have been holding rallies across Michigan.
President Barack Obama is asking for Congress's support to attack Syria over what he says is the government's use of chemical weapons to kill more than 1,400 people.
Several dozen opponents of a U.S. attack marched through downtown Detroit for a rally Sunday at the waterfront Hart Plaza.
About 30 people opposed to American military intervention turned out for a rally Saturday in Grand Rapids. On Friday, about 100 supporters of an American military response held a rally in the Detroit suburb of Birmingham.
The group Peace Action has called a vigil for Monday afternoon in Ferndale and Wayne State University to urge a diplomatic effort rather than a unilateral U.S. attack.
