ALEPPO, (SANA) — A campaign was launched in Aleppo on Wednesday to collect one million signatures at Saadallah al-Jabri Square, organized by the Syrian Mothers’ Convoy, in rejection of foreign interference in the Syrian internal affairs and in support of the comprehensive reform program led by President Bashar al-Assad.
Sharif Martini, supervisor of the convoy, said that the campaign seeks to submit the signatures to Maronite Patriarch Boutros al-Rai before submitting it to Pope Benedict XVI to underline the unity of the Syrian people against the conspiracy.
Khaled al-Jassem, an Islamic preacher, emphasized the necessity of fraternity among peoples and discarding sedition, adding that the conspiracy is aimed at paving the way for the return of colonialism under the pretext of preserving human rights.
The event coincided with a youth gathering at Saadallah al-Jabri Square organized to stress rejection of foreign interference in Syria. The participants raised national flags and the Russian and Chinese flags to express gratitude for their support to Syria.
Participants said that the gathering expresses the support of the Syrian people to the comprehensive reform program, voicing trust that Syria will come out stronger from the crisis.
