Syrian activists launched a major campaign on various social media sites with the aim of mobilizing all Syrian rebels and revolutionaries against the Assad regime, calling on “advocates of humanity” to stand by the Syrian people in their struggle for freedom and dignity.
Organizers of the Syrian Day of Rage campaign set Saturday as the date for the start of the campaign which aims to “reaffirm commitment to the principles and values of the revolution until the overthrow of the Assad regime.”
Organizers pointed out that they seek to mobilize millions in one day and send a message to all the free people around the world that Bashar Al-Assad is the source of terrorism in Syria. They stressed that “the Syrian Day of Rage is the day when all the revolutionaries in the world stand united against the Assad regime.”
Activists noted that the campaign also aims to respond to “attempts to tarnish the image of the opposition and the Syrian people and accuse them of terrorism.” They underscored that the Syrian people has been subjected to all kinds of killings, destruction and displacement, adding that the Syrian people are the first victim of terrorism being practiced by the Assad regime and its allies.
The campaign focuses on photos of victims of the Assad regime’s aerial bombardment as well as photos of the displaced people who are now living in poorly equipped camps and out in the open. It will also focus on photos of victims of the bombing campaign by the international anti-ISIS coalition and terrorist groups which were brought by the Assad regime.
Organizers of the campaign called on the United Nations and the international community to hold Bashar Al-Assad accountable and condemn the crimes being committed by the Iranian, Lebanese, Iraqi, Afghan and the rest of foreign militias which were brought by the Assad regime and its allies to Syria.
