Friday, October 21, 2011
Rallies took place across Syrian cities, town and villages today Friday October 21, 2011 in which Syrians demanded an end to the autocratic rule of their dictator Bashar Assad. Syrians have been rallying massively every Friday since March 15, giving each one of these Fridays a theme, and a name. Today was the "Friday of the Martyrs of the Arab Chance."
Syrians who took to the streets this Friday, expressed their frustration with the many chances that the Arab League has given Assad so far to stop his violence against peaceful civilian demonstrators. The Arab League gave Assad 15 days to resolve the problem without using violence. Assad ignored the plea.
After the arrest and murder of Libya's Moammar Qadhafi at the hands of rebels, yesterday,Assad agreed to receive the Arab League delegation in Damascus on Wednesday. The Syrians, unsatisfied and still rallying en masse, put up the pre-Assad Syrian flag (in the picture above in Edlib today), with four words in Arabic that read: "Congratulations Libya, Soon (in) Syria."
