Local Syrian civil society organization, Kesh Malek, in its mission to further awareness and advocacy surrounding the Syrian conflict, started a media campaign called the Syria Banksy project. Within this project, local volunteers planned and organized graffiti murals, based off of London artist and social commentator Banksy, reflecting on current events while tying in the Syrian conflict.
One such installment was a message of solidarity for the Sudan uprisings and protests early this year.
This is part two of a two part video series focused on the Kesh Malek campaign.
