Syriac Union Party participates in Syrian Democratic Council event commemorating 11th anniversary of Syrian Revolution

NORTH AND EAST SYRIA — On the 11th anniversary of the popular protests against the Syrian regime and the violent crackdown that led to the Syrian Revolution, the Syrian Democratic Council (SDC) held a commemorative event at the Mohammed Sheikho Center for Culture and Art in Zalin (Qamishli), North and East Syria, on Tuesday.

Co-Chairs of the Syriac Union Party (SUP) in Syria Sanharib Barsom and Nazira Goreya, alongside the SUP Executive Body and Council, participated in the event.

Representatives of 31 political parties, representatives of women’s movements and organizations, and the Martyrs’ Families Council attended the event.

The event began with a minute of silence in honor of the souls of martyrs. Then, political speeches by officials of the SDC and various political parties were delivered.

Barsom called on all Syrians to consider the experience of North and East Syria.

“North and East Syria has become a haven for all Syrians fleeing from the brutality of the Syrian regime and Turkish-backed military factions,” said Barsom. “It is the land that revived religions and identities and that the Baath regime sought to obliterate for decades to achieve its chauvinistic goals.”

Barsom stressed that Democratic Autonomous Administration (DAA) is the salvation for the Syrian Revolution, and it is a fruit that has ripened after watered by the blood of thousands of men and women from all ethnicities and religions.

“We will continue to struggle for the Syrian nation and end the crisis to revive the true Syria,” Barsom concluded.
