Streik in Damaskus11. Juni 2012, von aus dem Netz
Compared to the violence elsewhere in Syria, the three days of civil disobedience recently in Damascus were a small matter. But the merchant’s strike and related peaceful protests shook the Syrian capital all the same.
It was the first protest in the commercial heart of the city – where the dictator Bashar Al Assad and senior members of his regime are based – since the protests began nearly 15 months ago.
