Syrians Now Willing to Talk
June 24, 2012
In Damascus, Syrians now openly speak their minds, but often won’t offer a name for the record.
The “wall of fear” is crumbling even in the capital, where the security police have the heaviest presence. Syrians have lived under surveillance and emergency law for years, but after 15 months of anti-government protest and a brutal response by the regime, the killings have changed people.
"Now, I believe that most of the Syrians feel in their bones that the regime is over and it’s only a matter of time," said one veteran activist, "There are wide areas that aren’t under the control of the regime, and Syrians are learning to speak for themselves."
