Syrian activist using art to protest against al-Assad


Ahmad Jalal is a Syrian artist and activist whose drawings have been widely used as placards in his hometown of Kafrnabel in demonstrations against Bashar al-Assad's regime.

His drawings led the Financial Times to call Kafrnabel "the creative centre of the revolt against President Bashar al-Assad".

Having previously volunteered to fight against American troops in Iraq in 2003, Ahmad is now peacefully campaigning for a civil state which provides inclusiveness for all members of Syrian society.
