Stop the War event on Syria

Stop the War held an event on 9 December on Syria at Manchester University. We attended alongside members of the Syrian community and we relayed our concerns regarding the developments in the country. Particularly, we were concerned that out of a group of four panellists on Syria, only one of them mentioned the Assad regime.


Together for Syria Event

We participated in an event organised by Syria Solidarity Movement called 'Together for Syria'. This event brought together Syrians activists, supporters, and others to discuss various aspects of the Syrian conflict.


Citizens UK Refugees Welcome Training

On 28 November our Refugee Support Coordinator attended a workshop with CitizensUK as they are preparing leaders from all around the UK to campaign for increasing the number of resettled Syrian refugees to reach 50,000 by 2020.


Voices from Syria in University of Liverpool

We held a 'Voices from Syria' presentation at the University of Liverpool on Monday 23 November 2015. We presented to a very engaging audience and clarified the Syrian conflict through personal narratives.
Thank you to Liverpool's Amnesty International Student Group who organised the event.


Caesar Exhibition in Parliament

We attended a Parliamentary event on 28 October on the Caesar photographs which were smuggled out of Syria. These photos document the systematic torture that occurs on a regular basis within the Assad regime's prisons. The event focused on achieving accountability and called on the UK Parliament to take more action to achieve justice for victims in Syria.
