This video is of a woman activist at one of the anti-Assad protests in Idlib, Syria, numbering 1.5 million civilians (out of 3 million). It is circulating on social media along with photos showing the scope of protest & the spirit of resistance in Idlib even while under ground & aerial bombardment by Syria, Russia, & Iran. Assadist propagandists have responded to this documentation of the Syrian Arab Spring uprising in the most shameful & detestable way: by vilifying this woman, even though they have no idea who she is; by claiming these protesters are all associated with terrorist militias; by talking about the scale of female child marriage in Idlib; & by talking about women’s rights under “Islamist” rule. Misogyny is the bedrock of Islamophobia & Assadism.
