And again, in Aleppo.
Over the past week the slow-motion nightmare that was the Russian-backed effort by the Syrian government to take rebel-held Aleppo reached its final days. In a block-by-block bloodbath, government forces cleansed the city, murdering thousands of civilians. Men, women, and children who had been trapped in the city for months were killed in an act that has been called the greatest mass atrocity of the 21st century.
Today we educate ourselves, bear witness, and work to prevent this kind of atrocity from happening again. Get started.
