Conference Call with Exiled Syrian Dissident
|May 1, 2012|
We would like to invite all of our readers, especially our campus ambassadors, to participate in a conference call with Syrian dissident Hadeel Kouki. Hadeel’s activism began when she was studying Law and English Literature at the University of Aleppo. After the outbreak of the uprising in Syria in January, 2012, Hadeel became an active participant in peaceful demonstrations. She was arrested on March 10, 2011, for distributing pro-democracy flyers and was jailed for 40 days. She was arrested a second time for participating in pro-democracy demonstrations on August 13, 2011, and again on September 11, 2011. After relocating to Cairo, she was beaten up and threatened by the regime’s security forces working outside of the country.
The call will take place on Monday, May 7 at 4PM (EST). If you are interested in joining the discussion, please let us know as soon as possible as the number of spots is limited. We hope that you will join us now and in the future.
If you would like to RSVP for a spot on the conference call, please email email@example.com with the number of people who plan to dial in. We will get in touch with everyone about the details of calling in as the date of the conference call gets closer. All other questions and comments can be directed to that email address as well.
