In the clip posted on YouTube on Friday, demonstrators can be seen tearing down a poster of Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad in Deraa. In Homs it is a poster of Assad’s late father, and previous president, Hafez al-Assad that is torn down.
The act of iconoclasm is remarkable given the usual fear of speaking out against the government. Assad’s regime in Syria is widely acknowledged as one the most repressive in the world.
