From the Local Coordination Committees
The killing machine of the Syrian regime has started another military campaign against our beloved cities and towns, in Hama, Deir Ezzor, Bokamal, Moadhamieh, Hirak and others. More than 100 people have been killed today. This confirms the criminal murderous nature of the regime to those who are still unsure about it, and makes it paramount to all Syrians to get rid of it, sooner rather than later.
To the squares of freedom, O Syrians. The price of changing the regime is lower than that of leaving it. If this regime manages to regain control, much more of your blood would be shed, and much more of your dignity would be lost, and you will be ruled by a gang of Shabeeha, murderers and thieves. You will face black days for many coming years if the current regime maintains the upper hand in this great national confrontation. The blood of your brothers and sisters in Hama, Homs, Daraa, Idlib, Damascus and Deir Ezzor is crying out for you to rise up and save your homeland from the rule of criminals.
To the people of Aleppo and Damascus, to the grandsons of Yusuf Al-Azma and Saleh Al-Ali and Sultan Basha Al-Atrash and Ibrahim Hanano, it is your duty today to rise up and defend your brothers and defend the future of your children and the unity of your nation. If you do not free yourselves and save your country now, you will be ordered around like slaves for years and decades, and you will pay a very high price, much higher than what you might have to pay today to participate in the glorious national revolution.
The local coordination committee invite the Syrian people to hold a general strike all over Syria starting from today, in support of our brothers at all the Syrian cities and as a means of protesting against the extreme violence and killing by the murderous regime all over the bleeding Syria.
To the squares of freedom O free Syrians. To the brave, peaceful revolution to get rid of the Shabeeha who are ruling us!
Live long free, united Syria
Glory is for martyrs
And shame is on the murderous rulers
Local Co-ordination Committees in Syria
Victory is for our revolution, and mercy is upon our martyrs.
