The reason behind starting this blog is the unfortunate minimal media coverage of what is happening right now in Syria. The government’s security forces are killing peaceful demonstrators every day, and they control the ‘official’ press that reports on it. They also do not allow other news agencies or news channels to go and report on what is really happening.
If the Syrian government doesn’t have something sinister to hide, then why are they forbidding all news agencies from covering the demonstrations on the ground?
However, a new paradigm of social media that includes YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and mobile phones is proving to be an effective weapon in uncovering their lies and shining the light on their atrocities. These peaceful demonstrators are using their mobile phones and cameras to record the truth of what is happening to them. I created this blog to offer a spotlight on this, especially for those who do not speak Arabic. These voices must be heard. We can no longer live in a world that turns a blind eye to the unjust suffering and killing of innocent people.
