Syrian Voices

£1,350 of £5,000 goal

Raised by 30 people in 2 months
Hello, we are Mike Raddie and Alison Banville, co-editors of the activist run independent news website BSNews ( https://bsnews.info).

Last year we travelled to Syria - completely self-funded - to talk to people on the ground in Aleppo, Homs, and Damascus in order to hear first-hand testimony from the Syrian people rather than the compromised voices of corporate journalists reporting from outside the country. On that trip we also interviewed Aleppo's MP, Fares Shehabi and put questions to the Syrian government Minister of Reconciliation, Dr. Ali Haidar.

This next trip will be a further fact-finding and research mission which will bring back more authentic Syrian voices to challenge the official UK government narrative promoted by the mainstream media. We would very much appreciate any help you can give us in doing the vital work of the independent media in regards to Syria. We believe Syrian voices must be heard.

These funds will be used for travel to and within Lebanon and Syria, accomodation and for some decent camera equipment which we did not have on our last trip - see our interview with Fares:


Our reports, interviews and testimony gathered from ordinary Syrians will be added to our extensive Syria section on the website: https://bsnews.info/topics/war/syria/


Many thanks, Mike and Alison.

Update: thanks to the generous donations we have received so far we have now been able to book our flights to Beirut. This is the first step on our journey to Syria and we are profoundly grateful to the people who have made it possible. We cannot thank you enough. We still need to fund our travel inside Syria and secure our accommodation, as well as take with us camera equipment suited to the task of interviewing ordinary Syrian citizens, religious leaders and political figures. We would, therefore, greatly appreciate any support you can give us so that we can do the vital work of bringing back first-hand testimony from on the ground in Syria.
