Ammar's "Day for Syria"

My Syrian readers would want to read and consider this post by Ammar Abdulhamid.

Ammar is calling for "a one day work stoppage as a demonstration of popular discontent with regard to the spread of corruption and the inefficacy of government efforts to combat it." He's proposing February 1, 2006 as the date.

It would send a message from the Syrian people themselves, who have so far been manipulated, sidelined, bullied and intimidated, as they sit and watch corrupt, murderous thugs dragging them to the edge and willing to pull them down with them.

So click, read, and consider it.
