Unstoppable !

It is surreal to watch this video from my native Damascus, where I was born, where I grew up. I don't know Qaboun very well but I have been there. It is not too far from Abbasiyin Square which I remember that protesters had thought of in the beginning of the March15 protests as their potential sit-in Tahrir-style square.

Syrian revolutionaries have come a long way. It brings tears to my eyes to see this, to feel its beat, to hear their voices, just one voice: The people want to topple the regime.

Only those who have lived in Syria would understand what it takes to get to this. Such amazing courage !

It is a human river reaching the capital Damascus, a human river that cannot be stopped. And this is just one neighbourhood.. Just one.

Indeed unbelievable. Syrian Tahrir is coming. And these people are fearless. Omayd and Abbassid squares should becomenour Tahrirs. Be sure that once a sit-in takes place in Omayad Square the regime is gone
