Syrians plan demos on Facebook, Twitter

Written by


The revolution will not be televised
Droves of Syrians have joined a Facebook page calling for mass demonstrations in Damascus later this week. The call for antigovernment demos went out on Twitter as well.

Although Facebook is banned in Syria, tech savvy users find it relatively easy to access through proxies. The organizers don't expect to see mass unrest similar to Egypt or Tunisia and they don't believe the domino effect will spread to Syria.

Activists also noted that some of the calls for demonstrations came from Syrian expats, limiting their effectiveness. After all tweeting or posting rants on Facebook from the comfort of one's home is hardly the same as charging riot police through clouds of teargas.

C.I.A. doing its thing all over the middle east :( . I guess they want these countries to be in chaos just to be able to steal their oil like they've stole Iraq's oil. Remember that there were 11 American companies extracting Iraq's oil from 2003 to 2010 and that every company was extracting the same amount of petrol that the former state owned oil company was extracting. So 11 American companies have extracted such a large quantity of oil that Iraq itself could only have extracted in 77 years. they've practically robbed that country. Now its "liberated" , "democrat" and "free" . :)
