Today , in media, the news about Syria were focused on the town of Raqqa , to be liberated from the Islamic State: the international coalition is ready for an intervention in the area, and the UN warms of the danger on the city.
As we understand, the IS is worth a news, and a displacement.On the other hand, the inhabitants of Aleppo have never been the object of a post, except by the Syrian Opposition and its followers on social networks .
By the way, it must be remembered that the situation in Aleppo and its neighborhood is so deadly that Facebook recently censored the page of the Syria Campaign , the videos and photos being shocking. So, is it better not to see the reality?
In fact, it is the common attitude, and to protest against the Russian massive bombings , activists made a sitting in front of the Russian embassy in London, and elsewhere walks of solidarity took place.
But an important protest in favor of Aleppo was virtual, organized following timezones : on Twitter, a Twitter storm went viral today, with the hashtag #StandwithAleppo.
The image of the header is a screenshot of a photo twitted today.
The question remains: if we, we #StandwithAleppo, why the FSA (Free Syrian Army ) who liberated a part of the town in a battle for Aleppo, is never quoted ?
The Islamic State is a threat for Syria and the whole region , not only the West.
But , focusing on one point, we forget the civilians, and human rights.
