  1. Comrade: Your reports are one of the very few things that give me hope in this dismal time. That the Syrian people could rise up given the least opportunity, after all they have been through, is testimony to the human spirit. If you would ever like to send any report and/or any appeal to workers and young people here in the US, please send us a note and we’ll be happy to publish it on our blog site.
