Solidarity with Syrian Protesters

Facebook gives a lot of updates on the situation in Syria. Every day new horror stories. And stories about the difficulties in performing your profession. This is what a photographer friend wrote to me yesterday: I can’t take any photos now or complete my last photography project. A person with camera has become more dangerous than an armed person!!! Currently I am a little depressed…

And what can we do but – as just one example – join the following virtual “march”. Read about it and click on the link below:

This is a VIRTUAL event. It isn’t taking place on a specific date, and you don’t have to go anywhere to join. All you need to do to show your support for the Syrian people’s cause is click “I’m Attending.”

As people of conscience worldwide, we “march” in solidarity with the courageous protesters of Syria seeking freedom and democracy. We are people of different creeds, religions, and cultures. Few of us have personal ties to Syria, but all of us are united in our support for the peaceful protesters of Damascus, Daraa, Douma, Deir Az-Zour, Hama, Homs, Idlib, Jisr ash-Shughur, Rakka, and other cities across the country.

Our goal is to reach ONE MILLION Facebook members worldwide “Attending” this virtual march with the Syrian people. Reply “Attending” to join us, and please invite friends to join as well.

We “march” here, calling for an immediate end to the killings and war crimes perpetrated by the Assad government.

We march here, calling for the indictment of Assad and his cronies for crimes against humanity.

We march here with the people of Syria, whose peaceful revolution will not be defeated.

Share your love
