Flash Mob Gathers Near Cobo Protesting Syrian Attacks On Their People

DETROIT (WWJ) – Long months of bloody violence in Syria is causing protests across the world – including right here in Detroit.

A clash between Syrian forces and army defectors erupted Sunday, adding urgency just as the Arab League was extending an observers’ mission that so far has failed to end long months of bloody violence.

Sunday, a flash mob of over 100 people gathered in front of Cobo Center to protest the Syrian government and human rights violations.

Ayah is part of the youth group that took part in the flash mob.

“It’s a freeze flash – so people can see what’s happening in Syria and what the brutal government is doing to its people,” said Ayah. ” The government is just killing the people for speaking up and now the death toll is over 6,000 and there’s over 100,000 missing and they are just killing children, they are killing innocent people – and people need to know and the bloodshed needs to stop.”

Those participating in the flash mob were wearing tape over their mouths. This is their second flash mob.
