The Syrian Coalition’s political committee marked the launch of the Syrian Day of Rage campaign by organizing several meetings, sit-ins and events inside Syria today.
Vice-President of the Syrian Coalition Abdul Rahman Mustafa said that the propagation of the Syrian Day of Rage represents a revival of the spirit of the revolution, its principles and demands, most importantly bringing Assad and his clique to account.
The Syrian Day of Rage media campaign comes to protest and condemn the continued bloodshed in Syria by the Russian occupiers, forces of the international anti-ISIS coalition, the Iranian militias, and the Assad regime forces.
“Today, on our soil and among our people, we raise our voices high to reaffirm commitment to principles of the revolution, first and foremost to remove Assad and his regime, put an end to the tragedy unfolding in Syria, bring criminals to justice, and establish a democratic, pluralistic state that guarantees freedom, dignity, and justice for all citizens without discrimination,” Mustafa said.
Mustafa went on: “Today we call on brothers and friends in the international community to focus on the root cause and origin of corruption and destruction in Syria and the region, namely the Assad regime. The Assad regime practiced all acts of terrorism against the Syrian people and brought terrorist groups and sectarian militias to Syria as well as paved the way for the Russian and Iranian occupation forces to invade the homeland and killed hundreds of thousands and the displaced millions more.”
Nasr al-Harbi, head of the opposition High Negotiations Committee (HNC) delegation to Geneva talks, said that “there will be no stability in Syria and the region as long as Bashar al-Assad clings to power.” He stressed that “defeating terrorism depends on defeating its sponsors and its manufacturers, chiefly among them is the Iranian regime and ousting them and their militias from all Syrian territory.”
“After 50 years of tyranny and corruption, during which the Assad family thought that they succeeded in subjugating the Syrian people, the Syrian people rose up and rocked the ground under the feet of the Assad regime,” Hariri added.
Syrian activists on Saturday 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.”
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.
