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.

'Eating grass to survive' in besieged Homs.
Syrians in the besieged Old City of Homs are now so desperate for food that they are eating “anything that comes out of the ground, plants, even grass”, resident Baibars Altalawy has told the BBC.
Mr Altalawy, 24, described life in parts of Homs under government siege for over a year-and-a-half.
He said those under siege had had to rely on supplies of food, medicines and fuel left over from the time the siege was imposed - and they had now run out.
"If we don’t die from bombardment or snipers, we die of hunger or the cold," he told the BBC via Skype from Homs.
