8 – Damas:

– According to the Syrian government, the war is over in the capital. But after losing so much, Damascenes say the war has changed life irrevocably. These days, it’s not uncommon to hear murmuring in cafés about ineptitudes of the government. Can it last ?

9 – Le régime et la société :

Le Régime #Assad C’est ça: 7 via @wordpressdotcom

– People living in former rebel territory are under intense regime scrutiny.

Next time the #Assad regime or its patrons tell us that sanctions are responsible for electricity shortages, ask why the regime sells electricity to Lebanon rather than make it available to its own citizens.

Despite Border Crossings Opening, Jordan’s Exports to Syria Decline 69 Percent. Exports between Jordan and Syria was measured at 18 million dinars in the first three months of 2019, compared with 60 million dinars over the same period in 2018.

– Can the regime find an alternative to the Alawites-dominated areas as sources of manpower?

– After years of fighting tunnel warfare against the opposition & #ISIS, #Syria‘s military says it’s ready to bring that experience to bear in « the real war » against #Israel, which « is still on. »

– Changement Démograhique For several years the Syrian government has endeavored to systematically alter the demographics of the country as a means to cement its control. These actions have resulted in incalculable damage to Syria and its people. They must be halted immediately.

10 – SDF Kurdes: -ISIS’s ‘caliphate’ was crushed. Now #Syrias Kurd-led alliance faces bigger battles via @defensepost

11 – Les nouvelles consciences de la société syrienne :

– Syrian Revolution Anniversary on Capitol Hill –

– « Sous la dictature, il est interdit d’imaginer et de se souvenir. Trop dangereux aux yeux d’un régime qui s’acharne à contrôler les esprits pour conserver son absolu pouvoir. » (Sana Yazigi, syrienne, créatrice du site: « La mémoire créative de la rév. syr.)

— Il y a cinq ans, le 7 avril 2014, le jésuite hollandais Frans Van der Lugt était assassiné d’une balle dans la tête dans son couvent de la vieille ville de Homs, à l’âge de 75 ans.

– After their loved ones are detained or disappeared the families are left to grapple with the aftermath. Nophotozone, a new legal support and advocacy group, was launched to address the needs of these families

15 – EU :#Reconstruction contre transition politique en #Syrie : prudence et opportunité pour l’#Europe : l’analyse de @julientheron et @salamkawakibi sur le site du @CarepParis


16 – Analyse et politique:

– A Latin American diplomat acknowledged the severity of the challenges to international law in Syria, but argued that if the security council was deadlocked it should pass the issue to the UN general assembly to resolve, rather than confecting open-ended legal grounds for military intervention.  Latin Americans fear precedent set by legal justification for Syria intervention.

– J’ai énormément d’admiration pour les intellectuels #Syrie, qui essaient désespérément de conserver, de protéger les capacités cognitives de leur société. Tout espace de vie est un espace de socialisation, d’expérimentation, d’invention et de résistance.

– Le test du parfait Canadien. « En Syrie aussi, on avait le droit de vote, rigole Moustafa. Il n’y avait qu’un nom sur le bulletin. Celui du dictateur… »

‘The most metal thing I’ve ever done’: Metalheads sponsoring Syrian refugees.  Une communauté syrienne en pleine croissance.
