Democracy Now: U.S. Hostage Kayla Mueller Remembered for Humanitarian Work from Syria to Occupied Territories

http://democracynow.org - One day after her family confirmed her death in Syria, we remember the life of 26-year-old U.S. aid worker Kayla Mueller. Mueller's captors, the Islamic State, say she was killed in a Jordanian airstrike last week. On Tuesday, the family said it had received proof she had died, but it remains unclear how. Mueller moved to the Turkish-Syrian border in late 2012 to work with Syrian refugees. She had previously worked with refugees overseas including Tibetans in India, Africans in Israel, and Palestinians in the Occupied Territories. Mueller disappeared in August 2013 after she was abducted while leaving a northern Syria hospital. In a letter written during her captivity, Mueller told her family: "I have been shown in darkness, light, and have learned that even in prison, one can be free. I am grateful. I have come to see that there is good in every situation, sometimes we just have to look for it." We are joined by two guests: Emily Schick, Mueller's college roommate at Northern Arizona University and a fellow volunteer at the International Solidarity Movement in the West Bank; and Mauri Saalakhan of The Peace and Justice Foundation, who campaigned for Mueller's release. 

Syrian sit-in on youtube

A call for Syrian solidarity!

Calling all freedom fighters to join Syrians in their peaceful demonstrations to rid them of dictator Bashar al-Assad. al-Assad has responded to peaceful demonstrations with army tanks and warplanes. He has bombed innocent people in their homes and arrested and killed countless young men and women. 

Since mid-March 2011, entire cities have been displaced, armed security forces have been killing, stealing, and raping the people of Syria. 
Join the Syrian Sit-in on Youtube, film yourself saying:
I am in solidarity with the Syrian people. I reject the brutality and killing that the Syrian authorities are committing against the unarmed Syrian people. And because silence is participation in this crime, I declare my participation in the Syrian Sit-in on Youtube.
