The Local Coordination Committees in Syria
The Syrian regime continues to pursue a policy of escalating violence against a defenseless people that maintains its demand for freedom. Syrians insist on using their creativity and hope, singing their everlasting anthem of freedom and uttering the chants that every revolutionary believes in: “We will remain here” on the Friday of supporting the National Coalition, in the hopes of success and salvation.

The Local Coordination Committees in Syria documented 497 demonstrations throughout Syria today, the largest of which was in Hama, with 121 demonstrations expressing support for the National Coalition. Idlib followed, with 104 demonstrations demanding that the National Coalition support the revolutionaries. Deir Ezzor witnessed 68 points of demonstration, where activists called upon the National Coalition to fulfill its promise to see the Revolution through to the regime’s ouster. Aleppo followed with 57 demonstrations in which protesters chanted for Syria’s martyrs and impressed upon the National Coalition the need to unite its ranks. Damascus and its suburbs experienced 47 demonstrations, and despite the martyrs, protesters insisted on making their voices heard and demanded their rights. Daraa had 45 demonstrations during which protesters saluted the Free Syrian Army and demanded that it unite. Hasakeh experienced 31 demonstrations, followed by Homs with 19 demonstrations despite the choking siege. Raqqa reported 3 demonstrations, and Lattakia reported 2 demonstrations
