Event Details

Join Students in Solidarity With Syria at USF for an opportunity to hear a first-hand account of the humanitarian crisis in Syria from human rights activist Qusai Zakarya.

Zakarya, who survived more than a year of life under siege in his hometown of Moadamiya, Syria, is on a North American tour during which he will describe his survival of the August 21, 2013 chemical weapons attack as well as the horrors of living under siege, as the Assad regime implements a “starve into submission” policy in its attempt to suppress the popular uprising for freedom and democracy in Syria. With a 33-day hunger strike earlier this year, Zakarya was able to rally worldwide support to break the illegal siege of cities across Syria. Don’t miss your opportunity to hear him speak in Tampa on May 16!
