Lena al-Shawwaf - Paris At the Radio Stations House in Paris, a group of French and Syrian journalists and activists gathered in support of the four French journalists kidnapped in Syria; Nicolas Henin, Pierre Torres, Didier Francois, and Edouard Elias. Independent French journalist Agnes Lukin told Rozana: "We are here to support the kidnapped journalists, but beyond that we want to send a message of support to the Syrians." She added that journalists must go to Syria so that it won’t become just another black dot, and that they have to report on Syrian activists and their projects and advocacy for democracy and freedom , regardless of their affiliations. The journalist who has covered northern Syria in the press maintains that Syria is not the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS.) Hala Kodmani, the French-Syrian journalist, participated and told Rozana that it is really significant to have all this solidarity and support from French journalism to the detained journalists and their families. She said that there is an urgent need for such support and solidarity from Syrians with the French journalists to make them feel that "we are with them and appreciate their work." Kodmani added that we need to remind the world that "There are also have Syrian reporters and activists in the same situation, and no one is talking about their ordeals."
