Calls for an urgent change to the law

The National Human Rights Organization is calling for an urgent change to the law, after 30 people were questioned by police.

They are all members of the Damascus Declaration, which calls for political reform in Syria. 20 of them are still being held, hours after they were asked to come in for questioning. 10 others were released soon afterwards.

The NHRO says the promised law which will allow people to freely "organize political life" now needs to be passed as a matter of urgency.

I prefer to post this anonymously but I agree with them.
It is high time to change the relationship between the sulta and the people.

Too much aggression from the police state, we can not speak out, we only can whisper our agreement with the NHRO. We need to finish school and immigrate, then may be we can talk.
