Tunis, March 10th, 2012. The Women's International Network (WIN) of the World Association of Community Radio Broadcasters (AMARC), a network that includes more than 4,000 stations and production centers on five continents, reunited at the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) International Conference in Tunis, found about the current dangerous situation lived by the Syrian population.
Preoccuped by the Syrian women’s safety and integrity, and taking into acocunt the 631 cases of murders perpetrated by the Syrian regime since the protests began, as activists have documented, the AMARC Women's International Network demands Syrian government to stop the aggression committed against its own population.
It also calls upon the international community to demand an immediate cessation of the bombings that have caused the death of great number of women and children.
Furthermore, AMARC calls upon all its radio stations and production centers to widely spread information about the desperate situation that people is living today in that country of the Middle East and to dismantle the strict information blockade erected by the Syrian regime that prevents the flow of information to the international community about what happens inside their country.
