“This is a way of protesting against the shameful international rehabilitation of a criminal regime that goes on arresting, torturing and make people disappear,” Francesca said in her video message.


Syrian activists joined the strike have been gathering at 10 downing street in London and at the de la Republique Square in Paris, holding banners in solidarity with the victims of the Assad regime and Russian brutal bombing campaign.
