After the world's attention was diverted to seemingly more important issues, it appeared crucial to let the world know of the human rights violations currently taking place in Syria.
Whether it be through a riffle or a pen, it is every Syrian's duty to fight back, and social media has proven to be a somewhat effective method of doing so. This is my feeble attempt at spreading awareness in a language that will hopefully be understood by the majority.

How was the Syrian Revolution ignited?
Back in 2011, mass protests were held in solidarity with the detained boys of Daraa where the Syrian Army was deployed to quell the uprising and soldiers were ordered to shoot innocent protestors.
After months of arresting, torturing, and killing civilians, the revolution evolved to an armed rebellion.
What is the FSA?
Short for Free Syrian Army, the FSA was first started by commander Riad Al-As'ad around mid-2011. It is composed of civilian volunteers and Syrian Army defectors who thought it necessary to take up arms in order to defend themselves, their families, and their towns from the regime's mercenaries.

Protest in Yarmouk, a besieged refugee camp in Syria, in solidarity with the people of Gaza.

The Palestinian community in Syria has been profoundly and catastrophically affected by the past three years of bloodshed. Nowhere is this more evident than in the Yarmouk refugee camp.

By the start of the 2011 Syrian uprising, the Yarmouk camp housed some 150,000 Palestinian refugees, the largest concentration in Syria.Government forces eventually surrounded the Yarmouk camp and placed it under siege, cutting off humanitarian aid and food deliveries. This siege has led to more than 100 deaths related to dehydration and famine so far. But the siege was not so strict initially—it has been tightened in two stages. The first partial siege was instituted as part of the regime’s initial crackdown on Yarmouk, whereas a much tighter and deadlier siege followed later.

More than 1,740 Palestinians have been killed by the Syrian regime since the beginning of the Syrian revolution. (x)
