Ten months after the beginning of the Syrian uprising, the world continues to see protestors being killed by their own government. To go beyond the ineffectual international response, a German-based initiative wants to financially help local activists against the Assad regime by crowdfunding them.
FutureChallenges talked with Elias Perabo, a founding member of Adopt a Revolution.
Firstly, they want to enable the world’s citizens to support nonviolent Syrian activists in their struggle against the regime. Through their initiative it is possible to choose a concrete local committee and support it financially. The first activists’ committees were founded at the beginning of the uprising in March. They organize the peaceful demonstrations and strength then local civil society, facing great danger.
