Ariana Wardak is working on a story about the efforts of London’s Syrian community to support citizen journalists in their homeland. The community will be sending smart phones to their embattled countrymen enabling them to record news and information that can then be posted on social media sites.
Syria is becoming an increasingly dangerous place for foreign journalists, and without the commitment of citizens, many of the actions of the oppressive regime will not be made known to the rest of the world.
A shorter version of Ariana’s story will be printed in the London Free Press in the coming days. Stay tuned.
