Basil Hassan – Aleppo “Keeping kids and young adults away from violence and the ideas of revenge which have become prevalent with the militarization of the revolution.” This is what Mohammad told us when we asked about the objectives of “Home,” the social club created by a group of peaceful activists in the Syrian city of Manbij. The organizers of the club are trying to draw the attention of young people towards the revolution early goals; dignity and freedom, and to highlight the concepts of justice and equality. Ahmad, the artist responsible of the art and cultural section in the club, said that the activities of the project include art courses and galleries, in addition to the theatrical activities for kids to give the kids a creative outlet and allow them to escape the atmosphere of war. Hussein, the technical officer in the project is teaching IT courses to give the club members useful transferable skills. Through "Home" and other projects, the civil activists in Manbij are trying to show the civilized, humanitarian face of the Syrian Revolution and to stress the goals of the early protests that have become almost forgotten in the chaos of war, i.e. justice, equality and freedom for all.
