Syria protesters shot on June 6 2011 by Dictator Assad 's fascist Security Forces

Its "bloody friday" again today. Who knows how many innocent Syrian protesters will be gunned down by the security forces today. Those who will be killed today will add to the tally of nearly 3,000 Syrian citizens who have lost their lives during the last six months or so in the popular up-rising against the regime of Bashar Al Asaad.

If the brutalities commited by the security forces were not yet enough, now they have started door to door search and raid against the unarmed citizens.

The citizens of Syria despite all the brutalities by the security forces are getting stronger and stronger in their resolve to get rid of the present regime.

The International community has time and again stressed upon Mr Bashar Al Asaad not only to stop brutalities but also step down to pave the way for a democratically elected peoples government. Even the Secretary General of the UN has asked President Asaad to stop the brutalities. But all in vain.

Now for the first time the protesters are seeking international community support. A direst call has been made by their spokesperson. They are seeking some practical measures to save them from the atrocities of the security forces. They look forward to the International Community to intervene and save them.

As a first step the Syrian Revolution General Commission umbrella bloc of activists appealed to the international community on Thursday to send in human rights monitors to help deter military attacks on civilians in the increasingly bloody crackdown.
