Syria: Call to Free Human Rights Detainees

Syrian blogger Razan Ghazzawi appeals to supporters to exert pressure on the Syrian government to release her colleagues at the Office of the Syrian Center for Media and Freedom of Expression in Damascus. Ghazzawi herself was among those detained when the centre was raided on February 16. She has since been released.

  • I will not support this kind of crap stories, because whenever there is a civil war, where the opposite parties using force and getting violence against a country government, such as using weapons to attack a government, we should not support that kind of ideas.

    We should only support the peaceful protesting, like the one we have in the U.S.A. where the people cannot act like those in Syria, Libya, etc…, yet they still subject to Human Rights Violation in the U.S.A..

    Isn’t it worth worry about that someone or people are being mistreat simply because they stand up and occupy a place without violence?

    In Libya, Syria, Iran, those people attacking the government and the governments have to defend for their lives.

    I am a victim of Human Rights Abuse in the U.S.A daily, and no news reporters care to report them, because they think it’s okay to do so in the U.S.A, but not in poor countries. Story can be read here, at .

    Correct me if I am wrong, because I do not get it!
