Extract
"Prison Without Bars", which is the fruit of cooperation between Caesar Families Association (CFA) and the Syrian Center for Media and Freedom of Expression (SCM), with the support of Watch Impunity (IW), displays violations of arbitrary detention and enforced disappearance related to torture that leads to death, or ends with execution either outside the law or through summary procedures, or keeps the victims missing. It also examines those violations’ impact on the families of the victims, by working with a number of families who are members of the Caesar Families Association, whose loved ones’ identities were documented by the Association in the photos smuggled by Caesar in 2014. This report provides a picture of the complex, continuous and extended violation that affects the majority of Syrian society.
According to the lowest estimated numbers of missing persons in Syria, 100,000 persons have gone missing during the past ten years, i.e. within 3650 days. Approximately 30 victims have been documented as missing persons daily. Those are not the final numbers of the victims of the complex violations, excess of violence and denial of basic rights, the right to life, physical safety and knowledge of the truth, and others, that are primarily practiced by the government.

On 30 April 2022, Bashar al-Assad issued Legislative Decree No.7 which would grant general amnesty for terrorist crimes committed before the date of the decree. The decree would not include crimes that caused the death of another human being.
The implementation of this decree began with the release of a number of detainees, as crowds of hundreds of families gathered and waited for their detained sons.
This comes in light of a deliberate chaos caused by the Syrian regime, as no lists containing numbers or names of those released were issued by the Ministry of Justice, which is responsible for the implementation of the decree. In addition, the ministry did not issue any lists of names of those who will not be covered by the decree, or those who were martyred in the regime’s prisons and whose death has not yet been announced.
And while families of survivors shared pictures of their released sons on social media, the families of detainees whose fate remains unknown shared pictures of their missing sons, waiting for any information about their place of detention, or any news stating whether they are alive, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, Jawab, the Syrian Council of Male and Female Detainees, the Facebook page "We want the detainees", CNN, DW Arabic, AFP, Le Monde, the text of the decree published on SANA News Agency, Enab Baladi, Al Hurra, and Al-Modon.

Extract
The report reveals that at least 132,000 of the Syrian citizens arrested by Syrian regime forces between March 2011 and May 2022 are still classified as detained or forcibly disappeared in regime prisons. During the first ten days following the issuance of Amnesty Decree 7/2022, from May 1-11, 2022, the report documents the release of around 476 people from various civil and military prisons and security branches in the Syrian governorates, including 55 women and 13 people who were children when they were arrested.
In addition, at least 98 of the 476 released people had settled their security status prior to their arrest and been given a supposed guarantee according to the terms of these settlements that they would not be persecuted by regime security authorities; eighteen of those released, including two women, had been refugees or otherwise living outside Syria and were arrested on their return to the country, while at least 12, including three women, were Palestinian refugees.

Activists on social media and Twitter shared the hashtag #TadamonMassacre, after the publication of an investigation titled "Tadamon offerings" on the website of Al-Jumhuriya, and a video report on the investigation, published by the British newspaper The Guardian, on 27 April 27 2022. A leaked video that was widely spread, showed two members of Al-Mintaqa (district) Branch of the Syrian Military Intelligence Service, known as Branch 227, executing civilians, including women and children, throwing them in a big pit and then burning them, in the neighborhood of Tadamon, south of the capital, Damascus.
The date of this mass massacre, during which 41 civilians were killed according to the investigation, dates back to 16 April 2013. It was discovered by a new recruit in one of the security militias affiliated with the Assad regime, as he was browsing the contents of a computer and found horrific videos.
It is worth noting that this massacre is not the only one that has been uncovered. The investigation confirmed that Al-Mintaqa Branch, Branch 227, killed more than 280 civilians in the same way; they were taken to an isolated neighborhood in Damascus and were executed one by one in mass graves that had been prepared in advance. According the investigation published in Arabic on Al-Jumhuriya, the Guardian's report, The Levant, Syrian Press Center, BBC, The New Arab, Al-Quds Al-Arabi, Al-Arab, Arabi 21, Noon Post, Euronews, and Enab Baladi.

Brief
The novel is mainly about the experience of prison literature, but what makes it more unique is the angle from which the writer captured this scene, as he focused on the act of resistance through which the prisoner draws inspiration for his survival. The act of resistance that the writer highlights is through music and playing instruments during the period of detention.

Extract
The documentation of the Tadamon crime took me back to when my other brother, Zouhair, was filmed falling dead as the regime security forces were shooting at protesters in Deir ez-Zor.
When I identified Oqba in the Caesar photos, I decided to fight for justice until I can grieve properly for him and walk in his funeral the way we did in Zouhair’s funeral.
As I kept reading, I was reminded of the sniper who had shot my fourth brother, Obaida, while he was saving lives as a medic. I was reminded of my fifth brother, Tishreen, who was shot dead in his home just 10 days after we learnt about Obaida.
The regime’s viciousness was never new to us, and it won’t stop. This recent investigation has only brought back our memories and made us relive previous pains. This evidence must now be used to prosecute those responsible and charge them with war crimes, in the hope that one day we will hold all perpetrators to account.

The implementation of this decree began with the release of a number of detainees, as crowds of hundreds of families gathered and waited for their detained sons.
This comes in light of a deliberate chaos caused by the Syrian regime, as no lists containing numbers or names of those released were issued by the Ministry of Justice, which is responsible for the implementation of the decree. In addition, the ministry did not issue any lists of names of those who will not be covered by the decree, or those who were martyred in the regime’s prisons and whose death has not yet been announced.
And while families of survivors shared pictures of their released sons on social media, the families of detainees whose fate remains unknown shared pictures of their missing sons, waiting for any information about their place of detention, or any news stating whether they are alive, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, Jawab, the Syrian Council of Male and Female Detainees, the Facebook page "We want the detainees", CNN, DW Arabic, AFP, Le Monde, the text of the decree published on SANA News Agency, Enab Baladi, Al Hurra, and Al-Modon.

Keep me in you mind... Even if there are oceans between us, and roads with no bridges... Keep me in your mind
Even if there are countries between us, and trees longing for their roots... Keep me in your mind
Whenever you get cold, hope will stay warm
Even if forgetfulness gets between us, our joy will cover our sorrows
Even if there were no more photographs in our drawers, keep me in your mind
Injustice, war and the heaviness of days, our wounds engraved in our hearts
Keep the promise awake, with less blame and more dreams
So that your eyes glisten again
Keep me in your mind

Extract
The 23-page report notes that the Syrian people who participated in the popular uprising hoped that the areas that were outside the control of the Syrian regime would be models of freedom, built around democracy, social justice, independence of the judiciary, and other requirements of the rule of law, this has not yet happened. The situation for the peoples living under the authorities in those areas is, tragically, often comparable with the same lack of freedoms, rights, and judicial fairness as under the Syrian regime; this comparison, as the report notes, is wholly reprehensible because, for those who’ve escaped the regime’s rule, the comparison should be with civilized governments that respect international law, rather than with a barbaric regime involved in committing innumerable violations that constitute crimes against humanity and war crimes, which has practiced enforced disappearances, and killed 74 women under torture, as well as drafting a constitution that embodies the characteristics of dictatorship, and which has established security courts affiliated with the security services with the aim of liquidating opponents. The report stresses that this is a brutal regime that committed the most terrible violations against women for demanding political change, retaliating by displacing millions of women, and arbitrarily arresting tens of thousands more.

According to Source #DontLetThemDown
There have been detainees for many years inside security branches and Saidnaya prison, as well as a large number of the criminal regime's prisons. The detainees are subjected to starvation, systematic torture, and suffering unprecedented in human history.
In addition, the detainees' weak bodies are exhausted by diseases like scabies, tuberculosis and diarrhea.
They do not see sunshine for many years; seeing the sun became the dream of every detainee. They live in the darkness of prison cells and the cries of pain that could fill the earth with screams and groans from the horrific crimes committed in those human slaughterhouses.
They are starving behind bars, but feeding the universe dignity.

On 13 February 2022, a group of activists and human rights workers launched an advocacy campaign titled "Don't let them down", in solidarity with the detainees and those who were forcibly disappeared in Syria.
Many Syrians contributed to the campaign by broadcasting messages from the capitals of the world on their social media pages, and holding several solidarity vigils in a number of European countries and northern Syria in support of the detainees.
Dozens of Syrian civil organizations, associations of Syrian detainees, families of detainees, survivors, and national and Syrian figures, organized an event under the name of the campaign in Istanbul, Turkey. According to the organizers, the event aimed to convey a message to the world that “Syrians of all sects stand united for the right to advance the detainees’ file, to demand an inspection of al-Assad’s prisons, and to release of detainees, according to the campaign’s Facebook page, Al-Souria Net, The New Arab, Zaiton

I am a mother who misses her son who was detained in al-Assad's prisons for demanding freedom for Syria
I do not want to understand international laws, but I know that they are incompetent if they could not bring me back my son.
