Syria: Flowers for Peace among All Syrians

As a part of the “Stop the killing, we want to build a country for all Syrians” campaign, four girls started an initiative to distribute flowers in a number of Damascus streets with the slogan “Syria has room for everyone, stop the killing.” Activists shared photographs on Facebook of the campaign: “We collected our flowers and reached out for people's hearts. We shared love and shared our homeland. Syria is a homeland for all, Syria is for all Syrians.”
