Syria activists campaign against 'blood election'

Syrian rescue workers pull out a girl from the rubble following reported barrel bombs attacks by government forces in the northern city of Aleppo, on June 1, 2014Aleppo (Syria) (AFP) – Activists opposed to the Syrian regime have launched campaigns online and on the streets against Tuesday’s “blood election” which is expected to reaffirm President Bashar al-Assad’s hold on power. Forced to watch on as the government organised the presidential election to be held only in areas under its control, activists have combined humour with bitter criticism of the vote. In the northern city of Aleppo, swathes of which are in ruins after years of heavy fighting, a young artist has painted rubbish containers in rebel-held areas white, transforming them into mock ballot-boxes. Jumaa is part of a group called the Funny Media Activist, who aim to paint dumpsters all over Aleppo’s rebel-held areas before the elections.
