Students Organize for Syria stands in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement and protests around the U.S. against police brutality. Since 2011, Syrians have taken to the streets to protest an oppressive regime. SOS supports all efforts, disruptive or not, protesting oppression and violence perpetrated by the American police system. 

Like George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Joshua Downing, David Heeke, Kerry Michael Bounsom, Lucas Alvarado, Ramiro Carrasco, Stephen Douris, Michael Wallace, Raymundo Aaron Ceja, Duncan Lemp, Robert Johnson Jr., Gregory Howe, Sean Reed, Yassin Mohamed and Tony McDade all died at the hands of police officers in 2020. SOS stands with their families, as well as the protesters, demanding justice for black Americans murdered by law enforcement. 

SOS supports intersectional movements for liberation worldwide and all working to end institutionalized discrimination and racism.

SOS condemns the anti-blackness and racism entrenched in the United States and firmly believes that everyone must fight for change, equality and justice. SOS will continue to fight to dismantle systems of oppression locally, nationally and globally.
