• Gazes From Syria: Ten Years Of Uprising, Multi-Sided Civil, Sectarian and Proxy War

    public space


    Inspired by protests in other countries, citizens in Syria went out into the streets to demand reforms from the regime of Bashar al-Assad in the Spring of 2011. When their demands were met with a brutal crack-down by security forces, peaceful opposition turned into an uprising marked by large demonstrations in all major cities on 15 March 2011. The uprising slowly developed into a multi-sided civil war, with ever splintering opposition groups, supported by weapons and money from Iran, Iraq, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, USA, Lebanon, and Russia. For years, the conflict played out prominently in the Western news media, but by now interest has faded away.
