AMMAN - Protesters took to the streets of Damascus suburbs and several cities across Syria on Monday to denounce a speech by President Bashar Assad they said did not meet mass demands for sweeping political change, activists said.

"No to dialogue with murderers," chanted 300 protesters in the capital's suburb of Irbin, a witness told Reuters by telephone, with the slogans echoing in the background.
