Clip from Article:

This type of protest would never be allowed in Syria,” he said. “The government would come with a tank and shoot everyone. They’d arrest people, throw them in jail and torture them.
“I want to be able to visit Syria … I’ve never even been there. I want to take my children there to see my father’s roots.”
Protesters handed out flyers to passersby touting a Syrian Revolution. The colour flyer says the Syrian regime has killed 1,500 people and arrested another 20,000.
