This is without forgetting that before the elections, activists distributed flyers and brochures condemning the elections of blood and the criminal Assad dictatorship in some regime controlled areas such as in Damascus and Hama.

Despite the destructions, killings and everything else, the Syrian people have not kneeled… The Syrian revolution continues…
