Activists develop live mapping of protests and deaths in Syria

The Local Coordination of Committees in Syria developed a live mapping following demonstrations in the country.  Recently on every Friday, despite heavy crackdowns and mass arrests and torture, Syrian people are continuing demonstrations across Syrian cities against the government of Bachar al Assad.

Last week, for the first time since the beginning of the demonstrations, protesters called for the army to join them after numerous reports of soldiers refusing to shoot on protesters. Protesters organized night protests in Damascus suburbs, Homs, Hama, and Deir er Zor. On the map protests and deaths are recorded.
