Two activists detained in Syria

Artist, writer, blogger, European. Following the Arab Spring since its breakout. Currently active supporter of the Syrian revolution. Glad to live in times never expected.

Two activists were recently detained in Syria by the regime guards.

The first one is Noura Aljizawi, a young woman very busy with the coordination of the nonviolent revolution against the regime. When the security guards arrested her she carried half a dozen cameras with her with videos and personal information’s about other activists.

Noura is threatened to face torture or even rape during the infamous interrogations. Petitions have been floated demanding her release.

The other detained activist is the citizen journalist Ali Othman who became well-known for his recordings and real time gourd reporting and video clips from the shelled district in Homs, Baba Amr.

Ali was also witness of the shelling which led to the death of the reporters Marie Colvin and Remi Ochlik nearly one month ago.

To imagine what the activists and citizen journalists are going through in Syria this footage token in Al Khaldiyeh, another raided district in the city of Homs, will explain the risks while reporting from shelled areas:

There is a lot of pressure via media and human right organization for their release, our hopes are that the regime will release them as soon as possible with the global awareness for the causes are growing.
