This Hanukkah Give the Gift of Truth

The Media Line led twenty years ago in pioneering the American independent news agency in the Middle East, arguably the first in the region. We have always stayed true to our mission: to provide you with contextual sourced and trustworthy news. In an age of fake news masquerading as journalism, The Media Line plays a crucial role in providing fact-based news that deserves your support.

We're proud of the dozens of young students we've trained in our Press and Policy Student Program who will form the vanguard of the next generation of journalists to the benefit of countless millions of news readers.

The Syrian Conflict: 10 Years On – Experiences of Syrians in Scotland

The Syrian Conflict: 10 Years On – Experiences of Syrians in Scotland

Tue, 27 Apr 2021 18:00 - 21:00 British Summer Time (UTC+1)

Register here.

In the 10th year since the beginning of the Syrian Crisis we reflect on a decade of continued courage and inspirational activism.

About this Event

In the midst of a pandemic and with the conflict in Syria reaching its tenth year, European nations, including the United Kingdom, have harshened restrictions and their solidarity towards displaced people has waned significantly, to the point of turning their backs on those in need of support. In this discussion, we bring together both the human lived experience of Syrian newcomers to Scotland, with the grounded legal and political knowledge of those working to improve conditions for asylum, hoping to provide a well-rounded reflection of what it means to be a New Scot, at a time when borders are closing, government policies are growing ever more hostile, and support is increasingly hard to access due to restrictions.

This event series is brought to you by Edinburgh University Feminist Society, Edinburgh University Amnesty Society and Student Action for Refugees. The events will be hosted on zoom so please register on Eventbrite to receive the meeting details.

We are encouraging donations to organisations that are representing us as speakers including:

  • The Syrian Human Rights Network
  • The White Helmets
  • Edinburgh sponsorship circle
