In March 2011, after four decades of dictatorship, the Syrian people rose up peacefully to demand freedom and dignity. The regime of Bashar al-Assad crushed that uprising with force, triggering an international war that has killed more than 400,000 and driven 12 million from their homes.
In the rubble of this destruction foreign extremists like Isis have flourished.
The Syria Campaign launched in 2014 to mobilise people around the world to help stop the violence and accelerate progress towards a peaceful and democratic future for Syria. We stand with Syrians against human rights abuses and oppression from all sides.
Together we have run campaigns that have saved lives and helped change the way the world sees Syrians. The bigger we are, the more impact we’ll have – please join us.
Thousands of Syrian non-violent activists are asking for solidarity to stop the violence and extremism in their country. These activists feel as if they are on a different planet because no one is hearing them. Are you? Join their campaign to stop the bombs and support real peace talks.
Syrian doctors, nurses and paramedics are being targeted for treating their patients. They are being bombed in their hospitals. Now a head doctor is asking for support from the global medical community. Recruit all the medical workers you know to sign his letter demanding the UN take action and stop the bombs.
After more than 5,000 letters and targeted pressure at key members of the European Parliament we managed to overturn a ban on an exhibition evidencing Syrian war crimes. It’s important – we need these politicians to see what is happening in Syria so they can pursue justice.
