Diary of a Damascene Revolutionary مفكرة ثائر دمشقي

A few decades ago the Syrian poet Nizar Kabbani wrote his famous poem “Diaries of a Damascene Lover” declaring his love for his hometown Damascus. It is one of the most beautiful modern day poems written of a city. Many Damascenes share Nizar’s love for their city. It is the oldest capital in the world and the oldest continually inhabited city in the world. Damascenes only call her by its pet name “Al-Sham” and many consider it as their first love. In this documentary by Orient TV, a new diary is being written by the Damascene youth of today. They have declared their love to their city, and revolted to clear up the destruction and pollution that has befallen on their beloved city. Many reasons have led them to rise up against a tyrannt regime; basic humane reasons, the lack of urban planning and the deliberate uglification of their city, the monopoly of the regime over the economy and its squeeze on the city’s traders. But most importantly, those youth are revolting for the sake of their eternal love.. their beautiful city.. Damascus AlSham..
