Family Slaughtered Inside Home

by John Mak February 11, 2012

A new video coming out of the city of Homs shows an entire family that was slaughtered inside their home. They were discovered 10 days later. A horrific scene unfolds. The father was killed away from the rest of the family, while they watched. Likely, he was humiliated and tortured in front of his wife and kids, then the wife and kids were scared into a corner and had their heads covered with hoods, then gunned down. This family was found, but their are hundreds of others that are yet to be discovered. Don't watch this video if you are at work:

Violence Escalates in Syria's Deadliest Assault on Civilians

by John Mak February 4, 2012

 

To mark the 30 year anniversary of the Hama Massacre of February 1982, wherein Assad's forces leveled an entire town killing over 50,000 inhabitants, raping children, women, and boys, and torturing and inprisoning over 100,000 others, Assad (the son) sends his forces to the city of Hama to shell, bombard, rocket, and slaughter the inhabitants. The numbers aren't clear, but estimates put the true death toll at about 400, over 1500 injured, many of whom will die from their injuries, and another 3000 buried under rubble of collapsed buildings. Complete indiscriminate killing. Watch the interview on CNN from a man in Hama:

Lifting Emergency Law while still Killing

by John Mak April 19, 2011

Saying that you are going to lift the emergency law while still killing people is unacceptable. The new legislation has not been signed into law, and even if it does, it prohibits protests altogether. That is unacceptable.

The problem in Syria is that people feel that they have no right to express themselves, to gather, to meet, to speak freely as most people in most parts of the world do. This humiliation and lack of basic dignity is furthered by the new law. The people of Syria have already rejected this "concession".

Try again.
