The Scratches of Syria at AUK Sheds Light on the Syrian Humanitarian Situation

The Scratches of Syria initiative, in cooperation with Syria Club at AUK held a short movie evening where they played movies reflecting the humanitarian situation in Syria. The movies shown were by Syrians directors, including Nader Makki (Death Time Story), Wessam Khwaji (Assi Alhawan), Kotaiba Al-Khoos (Love in a Hurry), Bassel Chehadeh (Saturday Morning), Taeem Henawe (Where are they?) and Abdulrahman Nahlawi (Darwash).

The movies carried different messages reflecting the life of Syrian children during the war, the new street language and war terminologies, and the life of refugees away from home. The evening ended with a movie rating by the audience.

For the second consecutive year, Scratches of Syria maintained its unbiased political stance, a practice it always emphasized since the launch of its first event last March. Supporting this position, Enas Al-Halawani, Scratches of Syria Coordinator stressed that "the Most Important matter right now is that Syrians get along together and forget about their political views because the existing fragmentation among Syrians is the main reason behind their weakness". Mohammad Naji, Scratches of Syria Coordinator, also agrees with the same argument confirming that "focusing on the armed solution makes us forget who are fighting and why we are fighting". Naji also added that "Scratches of Syria started and will keep following this trend of focusing entirely on the Syrian humanitarian situation". The event ended by announcing the upcoming Scratches of Syria event next March 2014.
