For the twelfth day in a row, people in the city of Suwayda and its countryside have continued to demonstrate against the Assad regime in Karama Square in the center of the city on Thursday. They renewed their demands for political change and the implementation of UN Security Council Resolution 2254.
On Thursday, demonstrators raised signs that read: “The religion is for God and the homeland is for everyone. There is no liberation for women without the liberation of society and the achievement of justice. I have the right to think about how I want to live tomorrow, not if I want to live tomorrow. I do not want a second citizenship. I want to be proud of the Syrian nationality. Tyrants and invaders are two sides of the same coin.”
The demonstrators also chanted songs composed by protesters demanding freedom and political change, including: “I would write you a letter and send you to leave us alone, Assad. It would be better for you.” “Go, Bashar, with Iran and Russia. We don’t want drug dealers, you maker of the Captagon drug.”
Protesters also called for the departure of the Assad regime and the withdrawal of all foreign forces from Syria, especially Russian and Iranian forces and all sectarian militias. They also demanded the implementation of UN Resolution 2254.
