On May 26, 2021 14 million Syrians voted in Presidential elections, overwhelmingly reelecting President Bashar al-Assad. An independent, international delegation of observers called the election "the legitimate, democratic expression of the Syrian people" and noted that "for many Syrians, the election represents the imminent ending of the war, the defeat of foreign plots, and hope for the future."
Join 4 participants from the delegation for an eyewitness account of the situation in Syria as the country continues to push back U.S. intervention, reassert its sovereignty, and rebuild after years of imperialist war.
