The Syrian Opposition Coalition (SOC) extends its sincere congratulations to the Syrian people on the occasion of Nowruz Day, especially the Syrian Kurds for whom this day represents an occasion of great cultural and social importance.
This year we mark the Nowruz Day with a new spirit that coincides with the 10th anniversary of the Syrian revolution, having every hope that achievements of the revolution will be consolidated and that the quest for freedom will succeed. We call on the people of the nation to show unity in order to build a state that is based on the foundations of justice, equality and respect for human rights under a Syrian national identity that is proud of its national, cultural and religious diversity.
The Syrian people’s struggle las long echoed with the meanings of Nowruz, especially the resistance to injustice and upholding the values of freedom and peace. It is also a project to commit to their political, social, cultural and religious rights and preserve their cultural heritage. We all have to realize that the struggle to safeguard the rights of our partners in the homeland is the real guarantee for safeguarding our rights.
Nowruz is celebrated by more than 300 million people around the world. In addition to the Kurds in Syria, Circassians also celebrate it as the Circassian New Year.
We offer our sincere congratulations to everyone who celebrates Nowruz and to all the people of Syria at the beginning of a new spring. We wish them a year full of goodness, achievement, struggle, and a life of freedom and dignity.
