Syria - Protest in refugeee camp of A...
Azaz, Syria
By Michele Pero
06 Dec 2012

Refugees of the Azaz camp, Syria, protest for to get better conditions of life in the camp. Refugees of the camp of Azaz have lost their houses under bombings of Halep and surroundings. They left Halep with just the clothes they had at time of bombing. They have no documents, no money, no belongings anymore. They believed in passing the Turkish border to escape the massacres, but after a limited number of refugees which have been accepted by the Turkish government, the border was closed. They had to settle in the camp right on the Syrian border, waiting for a move that does not arrive. After more than three months living under tents, with no heating, no electricity, little food, wet conditions, a group of them has arranged a protest. They moved towards the Turkish border, crossing the no mans land and entering de facto in Turkey. They asked for better living conditions in the Azaz camp.
Traffic was jammed. Syrian refugees tried to stop all cars willing to cross the border, just allowing an ambulance to pass through. Turkish police moved to calm the situation, keeping great calm, even if a Turkish tank was moved on the border line just to say "pay attention".
An ambassador was sent by the governor of the area, to parliament for to have access to Turkey. He returned with no good news. Turkey cannot take more refugees and cannot do more than what actually it does. They must stay were they are, with no home to Syria, no passport to leave the country, almost convicted to stay in the camp. Ruefully they make return to the camp by night.

17 Oct 2012

On Wednesday, October 17, Cairo courts adjourned the trial of Alvert Saber, an Egyptian Copt accused of blasphemy for posting clips of the anti-Islam video on the Internet, to the session of November 14.

Saber, who denied he posted such clips, is not only accused of insulting Islam, but Christianity too.

Saber’s mother said that the police broke into their apartment illegally while she wasn’t here.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Hamdy al-Asiouty, member of Saber’s defense staff
SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – Kariman, Alber Saber’s mother

The defense staff of the young man said that their client said he was persecuted in custody by one of the prisoners under orders of a police officer.

The prosecution investigations revealed that the defendant used Islam and Christianity to promote his extreme thoughts on the Internet, mocking God and his prophets and calling for atheism.

A number of human rights activists and supporters call for the release of Saber as he has been practicing his freedom of expression.
