Yesterday, As-Suwayda’s countryside erupted in the face of the Junta Regime to the rhythm of the gradual lifting of support for wide sections of the working and popular classes. The protestors held up signs demanding freedom, justice, and equality. The masses chanted slogans demanding an improvement of living conditions and holding the Junta Regime in Damascus responsible crying: “Syria is ours, and not the Assads’.”
The plane of protests widened during the morning hours to include new areas, the most prominent of which was in the city centre as it witnessed a protest with higher demands, and the protestors recoursed to cutting main and sub roads in many areas.
The people cut the roads for many hours in the north-east of the province in Shaqqa, Umm Ad-Dabib, and Nemra. The last of which witnessed a noteworthy congregation of the city’s people who demanded the fall of the government, and the improvement of living conditions. Likewise, protestors also cut the Damascus-Suwaida Highway at the villages of Hazm and Khalkhala in the western countryside on Majadel‐Shahba Road for an entire hour. Tens closed the road leading to As-Suwayda city in the town of Al Qarraya in the south of the province, and only school and university students and medical cases were allowed to pass.
The city immediately replied to the calling with tens of people assembling at Ein Al Zaman Mausoleum. Protestors held up signs condemning the authority’s corruption and the wasting of public wealth, refusing any foreign presence on Syrian lands, “neither Eastern nor Western, we want an autonomous Syria.” There are those who help up religious flags to express the support of religious people to the popular movement and its demands.
Some decided to cut main squares in the city with burning tires while others went towards Al Sayr Square which is surrounded by government centres. The protest turned to a demonstration condemning the ruling authority by its inclusion of chants carrying the air of the The 2011 Revolution which defied humiliation and injustice.
As the numbers increased, the Junta Regime sent his reinforcements of security militias, the guards of his bourgeois power. Their members climbed to the top of buildings, provoking the people with their authoritarian and cruel appearance while the people’s rage erupted expressing in various ways the state of impoverishment they live in including the absence of nutritional security.
During the hours of noon, the protests went off spontaneously, and calls were circulated to renew them today on Monday as tens of protestors assembled in Al Sayr Square in the city centre, closing its roads amidst chants condemning the failed governmental policies. The municipal and single window employees responded with leaving and stopping their shift in solidarity with them.
Another social crisis explodes in As-Suwaida to the rhythm of an intensification of class struggle. The Junta Regime continues to accumulate wealth via its security and economic apparatus with the cost being the dignity of Syrians and the interests of the overwhelming majority of the working and popular classes while counter-revolutionary organizational structures are sinking in symposiums and conferences separated from the Syrian reality and in the current of colonial agendas. In light of the regression of progressive forces, the people spontaneously advance, rejecting all forms of tyranny, oppression, and inequality in the distribution of the country’s resources.
All solidarity and support goes to the comrades and the people in As-Suwaida in their uprising against the Junta Regime and its governmental and security apparatus which are nearly violating the dignity of Syrians and oppressing them to the point where there’s nothing left worth mentioning for the poor.
