Syria: Graffiti Activists Challenge I...
Kafranbel, Idlib province, Syria
By Nashwan Marzouk
09 Apr 2014

Storyline:
Activist groups in the city of Kafranbel (Idlib province, Northwest Syria) have organized a graffiti campaign called : "Freedom Without Any Doubt". Activists in the city are trying to fight radical islamist militias that have established a rule of terror in Syrian cities by painting quotes from the Koran that preach a humanist Islam on the city's walls . They also want to gain control of the public space back, which they say had been confiscated by Bashar al Assad's dictatorship as well as by religious militias such as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS).

ISIS has retreated from Kafranbel after a fight against moderate Islamist battalions, three months ago. Since then, activists can work freely.
We follow Hassan Al Ahmed and his fellow activists as they go on a tagging spree at night. We also follow Amer Mattar as he hangs posters around the town. Mattar's younger brother has been fighting with ISIS for several months but this doesn't keep the activist from fighting them with his posters.

Interviews:

Name: Hassan AL AHMED – ACTIVIST for 3ISH
Bite 1: "No religion is to be against one's will" is designed especially for the extremist islamists who say that Sunnis are the strongest. That they want to kill the Alawites and kick out the Christians. We tell them that Syrians are one people."
Bite 2: "There has been a militarization of the conflict but we are against that. We have kept faith in our principles, which are to obtain our freedom and our honor by peaceful protests. We don't want any weapons. "
Bite 3: "The Islamists came in town, they wanted to fight Jihad (holy war). We had to go underground in order to keep our activities going. We would go tagging and painting walls by night and they would answer back by spraying our tags with religious quotes, because all they wanted was verses from the Koran. But we kept on, so they fought us. They arrested my brother and put him in jail. They arrested many civil activists."
Bite 4 : "In darkness: The fly represents us: the youth who keep holding the wall. The fly on the wall keeps observing and buzzing."
Bite 5: "It's a campaign against military. We want to say that the military is wrong."

Name: Amer MATTAR – Profession: Activist for AL SHARE3
Bite 1 (night): "This is an opportunity to gain back the public space that was stolen from us by militia, and that was formerly occupied by the regime with the pictures of Bashar and Hafez Al Assad and that is taken now by Koranic verses. "
Bite 2: (day): "We are trying to spread our ideas and to confront religious extremism by quotes from the Holy Koran such as "Freedom without a doubt", "No religion is to be against one's will", or "How dare you take people as slaves, after they were born free", a quote from Caliph Omar Ben Khattab. "
Bite 3: "Anyone living on Syrian ground takes a risk as the regime can target any place. People are even afraid to have their houses tagged, fearing the regime could target them for that. My personal security situation is not different from the security situation the town is facing."

The Choice of Democracy, Kafranbel
Kafranbel, Syria
By Mais Istanbuli
14 Apr 2013

Every week, Ahmad Jalal, a young dentist in the city of Kafranabel, Syria makes controversial drawings about the Syrian regime, its allies, and the international community. Each drawing is a protest against the international community's declarations about Syria, or a denunciation of human rights abuses committed by the Syrian regime. Every week a banner is also made and echos the messages found in the drawings.

Unknown before the beginning of the Syrian revolution in 2011, Kafranbel is a small city that has become an icon of the Syrian uprising. Located in the Idlib region of North-Western Syria, in a zone controlled by the Free Syrian Army's Knights of the law brigade, this small city is now becoming known for its caricatures and banners.

The text on the caricatures and banners of Kafranabel is written in English in order to "reach the international public opinion more that the governments, as [the governments] have never done something for us since the beginning of the revolution", Ahmad Jalal says. Ahmad Jalal also tries to use the caricatures as a way to promote Syrian unity. Some drawings and messages have been dedicated, for instance, to Qamishli, a predominantly Kurdish city in the north-east of the country which is under the control of the PYD, a Kurdish independence party. After two years of revolution and war, Kafranbel is trying to lead the fight against sectarianism and is fast becoming a model for the rest of the Syrian population opposed to the regime, but keeping hope for a unified Syria.

‘I’m an ambulance driver and during the revolution I drove through battles in every single one Libya’s cities. But an ambulance driver’s pay isn’t a lot. After the revolution, when it was impossible to get money out from the banks, we couldn’t pay the rent and I decided to move my family in here.

‘The government hasn’t done much for the poor. It helped us in moving here and allowed us to stay, but it isn’t a real solution. People come here from miles around to dump their rubbish. Due to that issue, the children have to stay in the house most of the time because it’s too dangerous to play outside.’
