Survey of 50,000 Syrian’s views will be showcased and discussed
On Tuesday 19 May (7-8.30pm) Amnesty International UK is hosting an event with the Syrian activist organisation FREE-Syria on the theme of “What Syrians want”.
FREE-Syria (the Foundation to Restore Equality and Education in Syria), along with more than 100 activists inside Syria and abroad, have conducted a survey of more than 50,000 Syrians to determine what Syrians want.
Overwhelmingly, FREE-Syria found that those they canvassed in Syria said they wanted “freedom, equality, and democracy for all Syrians.”
- the founder and director of FREE-Syria as well as the English spokeswoman for the Local Coordination Committees in Syria - will be outlining the findings of the FREE-Syria survey at the event and taking questions afterwards. (For more information on the project, go here
