Massive protests in Syria demanding freedom continue - Will this end the Egyptian or Libyan way?
“Protests in Syria started on 26 January 2011 and were influenced by other protests in the region; on the same day, one case of self-immolation was reported. Protesters have been calling for political reforms and the reinstatement of civil rights, as well as an end to the state of emergency which has been in place since 1963.
On March 22, as a result of the protests, the Governor of Daraa was fired, but this didn’t mollify the protesters. Demonstrations increased, and on 24 March, it was reported that hundreds had been killed in marches at Daara that exceeded 20 thousand.”
Will the UN Resolution 1973 concerning Libya deter Syria’s Bashar al-Assad?
Will the Syrian military take the side of the demonstrators like in Egypt?
