On Saturday, 4th May, the Syrian Community in Manchester organized a silent protest against the World's silence on the situation in Syria. The protest was staged at Piccadilly Gardens from 1 to 2 pm. The participants had their mouths taped as a symbolic reference to the way the world remained silent while the Syrian people were being killed by the Assad’s regime.
The British Syrian ladies of Manchester have an amazing community of women who over the past two years have worked hard in raising awareness of what is going on in Syria and how people can help. They carry out various exciting events to fulfil their aim involving not just themselves but their children and families.
