Happy New Year noble Souria
Syria who maintains Humanity in the eye of the terrorist storm and kindness against inestimable odds.
Syria where the hand of friendship is always extended even to their enemies.
This collage of images is my very small and humble tribute to just a tiny percentage of the courage of these people. A courage that comes from a deep belief in the sanctity of their unity and their right to determine their own future without foreign intervention.
A right we should all be defending.
Please note in clip of elderly couple who had to leave their homes in Sheikh Saeed, they thank the Russians.
I would like also to say a massive THANK YOU to all who donated to my humble news site and enabled me to keep reporting from East Aleppo and to bring you the testimonies of the Sryian people, whose voices have been marginalised, dehumanised by a western corporate media baying for regime change and working in lock-step with their regime’s foreign policy in the region.
I have been back in France for two days and the familiar rage starts to bubble under my skin. People are kindly sending me information on the multitude of “Humanitarian convoys” that are “marching” to Aleppo to save the Syrian people.
Aleppo doesnt want you in Aleppo! It wants you to stay the hell out of Syria and to take your faux humanitarianism somewhere its really needed, like another planet.
The #WhiteHelmets are Nusra Front lackeys, stop falling for their nobility farce. They are proven to be Al Qaeda’s poster boys. Why did they leave with Nusra Front and not stay to help the civilians? Where were they when civilians were being mown down by Al Qaeda, civilians, shot, trying to flee almost five years incarceration under the Nusra Front regime?
The Syrian Araby Army is one of the bravest fighting forces on this earth. They are battling the evil created and unleashed by our regimes upon Syrian soil. They and their allies are fighting at the frontlines of the war that threatens all Humanity and yet so many still vilify and demonize them.
I watched as children ran to the arms of soldiers waiting for them as they left the liberated areas of East Aleppo. I watched children finally able to satiate their hunger after five years of deprivation and brutality.
I watched the liberation of East Aleppo and then I heard the cacophony of pre-fabricated lies, the bleats of exposed mainstream media as their firewall of deceit was breached by the voices of the Syrian people.
Aleppo is rebuilding, the Syrian people are rebuilding it. The Syrian people dont want your marches or your convoys. They want you to march to your regimes and to demand the end of sanctions that are crippling the health sectors in Syria. They want you to demand your regimes stop funding and arming terrorism in Syria. They want you to wake up.
So, make your choice, make 2017 the year you listen to the Syrian people.
Happy New Year.

Happy New Year Vanessa ~ Thankyou for your blog and wonderful video.
Happy New Year to you too xxxx
Thank you so much Vanessa. As a woman of Syrian descent, shukran ktir. My beloved Syria thanks you.
God bless you Vanessa for your bravery, honesty, integrity and compassion ! Your pictures are each worth a thousand words. We can see the truth in the faces of the children. We already saw Revd Andrew Ashdown’s own blog from the visit he and his colleagues made at their own expense. Same story about what the real Syrian people want.
I see the children of 2000 years ago that Jesus held and blessed…may God help and heal this country and make it blossom for these people.
