Roughly fifteen members of the Georgia chapter of the Syrian American Council rallied at the corner of Centennial Olympic Park Dr. and Marietta St. on Saturday afternoon in protest against Bashir al-Assad the president of Syria. Military conflict continues in Syria between the government and Syrian civilian forces.
Days ago, an American war correspondent Marie Colvin, who had been working for The Sunday Times of London, and a French photographer, Rémi Ochlik, were killed in a shelling in Homs, Syria. Weeks before his death, Rémi was awarded first place in the World Press Photo Awards for his series on the conflict in Libya. The series can be seen here.
UPDATE: This post was edited to include details regarding the group of protesters.
