Syrian Hurriyat – “hurriyat” means “freedoms” in Arabic – has just published its fourteenth issue. The 12-page newspaper has been published weekly since late August. It was founded by young Syrians living in exile in Europe, but also features writing from a dozen activists inside Syria. News reports, editorials, cartoons – it’s got all the standard fixtures of a weekly newspaper.
Recently it’s even gone online and some of the articles are translated into English. However, the priority is the newspaper itself, say its editors, because many in Syria do not have access to an Internet connection.
