A woman holds a placard Wednesday as she takes part in a protest organized by the Stop the War coalition calling for no military attack on Syria from the U.S., Britain or France, outside the entrance of Downing Street in London. Britain said it would seek U.N.

The resolution could be used to authorize military force against Syria. AP PHOTO
