Several dozen Syrians take part in a spontaneous rally in Berlin to protest against a simultaneous rally of supporters of the Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad. On signs, in songs and in chants the participants demand a free Syria and the end of the regime of al-Assad. They point out that it is not possible to rebuild war-damaged Syria with Assad and also criticise Russia's and Iran's support for the regime. They also call for the release of tens of thousands of political prisoners, who must fear for their lives in the regime's torture prisons.
