Syrians in Cairo protest for the ouster of Assad

Dozens of Syrians protested today in front of the Syrian embassy in Cairo for the ouster of President Bashar al-Assad, among other demands.

They also protested for a democratic transfer of power, the free establishment of political parties, the bolstering of freedoms, the release of political prisoners, and the abolition of the state of emergency which has been in place for 40 years.

In response to current events in Syria, the protesters condemned the killing of civilian protesters in Daraa and raised banners reading, "Long live Syria!" and "I'm here for you, Mother!"

They told Al-Masry Al-Youm they will continue to protest to express solidarity with those recently killed and imprisoned during protests in the southern city of Daraa. They accused the Syrian president of violating internationally-recognized human rights charters.
