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.
Our new report reveals the devastating impact that online disinformation and conspiracy theories have had Syrian human rights defenders, victims of war crimes, journalists, and humanitarians on the frontline – and social media companies have done next to nothing to address those dangerous lies festering on their platforms.
