During one of the speeches, passions were flared over the plight of Kurds in Syria, some people claiming they were discriminated against and attacked by Assad, and others pointing out that Syria has welcomed in many refugees over the decades, and that Syria is one of the few countries where the PPK was not active – a certain sign that Kurds didn’t feel under threat.
Whatever the truth, and there were many different views on this and other matters, there did seem to be two observations that united everyone. First, that outside interference has massively escalated problems in Syria, with different groups, internal and external, all trying to make their own gains out of the chaos. Second, that the alleged chemical attack in Ghouta, was almost certainly not by the Syrian Army, and that the mainstream media is colluding in a giant lie, as it did over Iraq and Libya.
