The Syrian Democratic Council

A dialogue seminar by the SDC entitled “After ten years, where is Syria going to” in Raqqa

The Syrian Democratic Council, in cooperation with the Union of Raqqa intellectuals, held a dialogue seminar entitled “After ten years, where is Syria going to” in which it discussed the repercussions of the International and regional situation on the Syrian crisis with the presence of a group of political figures, intellectuals, notables, elders and independents on Sunday at the theater of the Cultural Center in the city of Raqqa.

Dr. Ghayath Naaisa, a member of the Presidential Council of the SDC and the general coordinator of the Revolutionary Left Movement in Syria, began the seminar with the question that arises at any stage for Syrians is “where is Syria going to? Where he spoke about the repercussions of international crises and their repercussions on the global situation as a whole, the formation of new alliances, as well as some regional countries trying to expand their influence taking advantage of the current international proxy conflict in Ukraine.

Regarding the Turkish threats, Naaisa pointed out that Turkey occupied a part of Syria and carried out the demographic change in Afrin, and this margin allowed it to expand its regional interventions in several other countries, where the current international conflict is favorable to Turkey, but the two major countries will not allow any regional country to confuse their strategy in this conflict by a military operation that will have global repercussions.

As for the Syrian people’s revolution, which started in 2011 and was preceded by numerous protests before this year, Naaisa described it as “it was very deep and led to the exercise of the most severe types of violence towards it by the Syrian authority”. He also spoke about the weak role of regional states and the emergence of the interests of world powers.
“When the revolution was defeated in some locations, the Syrian Democratic Forces were achieving major victories in northern and eastern Syria” Naaisa said.

“All national and political powers have serious tasks, the most important of which are making peace in the country, resolving humanitarian issues such as refugees and missing persons, reunifying the country, achieving independence, and the need to formulate social policies that achieve dignity and decent living for the Syrian people,” Naaisa continued his talk on the Syrian reality and methods of resolution.

“We must strengthen this broad democratic umbrella, benefit from the experience of the past years and set new strategies to become the main base that unites all the democratic persuasions politically based on the Autonomous Administration” the general coordinator of the Revolutionary Left movement said.

The attendees raised several issues in their participations about the outcomes of the Syrian popular movement for eleven years ago, the processes of the demographic change, international interventions, the shedding of Syrian blood and the need to support the democratic project that should save the situation of the Syrian crisis.
