Syrians activists sent out warning messages via Twitter to the world hash tagging #DontTrustAssad on the second day of ceasefire in Syria.
As UN-backed ceasefire proposed to end 13 months of bloodshed in Syria appeared to be holding after coming into force at daybreak on Thursday, but Western countries publicly doubted Syria’s willingness to stick to it. Thousands of protesters took the streets across the country and those online were continuously spreading the message that their President Bashar al Assad should not have trusted for any of his commitments and promises.
#DontTrustAssad campaign was started by a group of Syrian activists who call themselves “We are Twitter users of Syria” in a synchronized manner supported by big Syrian activist names.

#DontTrustAssad because he’s shelling parts of Homs and Salamieh as you read this tweet

Videos below from northern city of Al Bab show the new wave of protests themed ‘Zero hour’ to tie in with the ceasefire deadline.
The topic spread internationally, and people from various parts of the world joined in with their thoughts and the shelling Syrians have been suffering all this while.
#DontTrustAssad because you can’t trust someone who claims no innocent people are targeted when they lie dead in the thousands, at his feet.
