In March 2011, after four decades of dictatorship, the Syrian people rose up peacefully to demand democracy and dignity. The regime of Bashar al-Assad crushed that uprising with force, triggering an international war that has killed more than 500,000 and driven 12 million from their homes.
Yet despite the horrors Syria remains a country full of heroes struggling for a free and peaceful future. The Syria Campaign launched in 2014 to support these incredible frontline humanitarians and activists. Rooted in human rights we stand with Syrians against abuses and oppression from all sides.
Together we have run campaigns that have saved lives and helped change the way the world sees Syria. The bigger we are, the more impact we’ll have – please join us.
In days, the UN will vote on the creation of an independent, international mechanism with the mandate to uncover the fate of over 100,000 forcibly disappeared and missing persons in Syria. Join the campaign to urge every UN member state to vote YES.
It took the UN multiple days to activate a disaster earthquake response plan for northwest Syria, a delay that cost countless lives. Thousands of people signed the petition telling the UN Secretary-General to act, and now we are pushing for an independent investigation into earthquake aid failures.
