Video: Syria - We have the right to be safe

Amnesty International UK joined with over 2000 Syrians in the UK for a 'No More Blood - No More Fear' march and rally outside the Syrian embassy in London on Saturday 29 October.
We also had an opportunity to hear the thoughts of people participating in the Pro-Syrian Government counter demonstration round the corner from us.
We were especially honoured to hear from Syrian human rights activist, Marwan Mahassen. He spent 16 years in prison and suffered horrendous torture because he chose to show his defiance to the Syrian government and campaign for a Syria which respects and protects the human rights of all Syrians.
