"Four Syrian women, Ru’a Ja’far, aged 24, Rima Dali, aged 33, as well sisters Kinda al-Za’our, aged 26 and Lubna al-Za’our, aged 22, were arrested in Damascus on 21 November after they dressed up as ‘brides’ and peacefully demonstrated for the end of violence in Syria.
The women were arrested from the Midhat Basha market in Damascus where they were peacefully demonstrating in white wedding dresses and carrying three banners; one calling for the end of all military operations in Syria, another with the words “Syria is for all of us”, and one saying “We are all exhausted, we want another solution”.
Witnesses claim that security officials arrested the women from the market immediately following their demonstration.
Despite enquiring with the authorities about their whereabouts, relatives of the four women have not been informed where they are being held or by whom. Amnesty International believes that Ru’a Ja’far, Rima Dali, Kinda al-Za’our and Lubna al-Za’our are prisoners of conscience, detained solely for exercising their right to freedom of expression and assembly, and calls on the Syrian authorities to release them immediately and unconditionally"
