People want freedom in Syria - level 3, A11

30-11-2011 23:00

Freedom is very important for every person on this planet. Many regimes in recent months have collapsed and this is especially happening in the Arabic world. One country which doesn’t yet have a democratic government is Syria. People in Syria want freedom too and they have been protesting since April 2011.

The ruling government doesn’t want to give up easily and it is using its army against the protestors. However, the protestors have weapons too and they are ready to use them. Syria is coming close to a war. No other country wants to be part of this conflict so it seems to just be up to the Syrian people to sort out their own problems.
