From the collective:

"A small group of Free Syrians offer their words. This project takes on one of the Syrian Government's most prominent symbols – The Ba'ath Newspaper – as part and parcel of the Baath Security State – and here turns it upside down to be a surface of new thoughts written by the Syrian people thus overturning the daily chronicle of government lies. We emphasize that the comments are directed not particularly to the Ba'ath but rather to 'The Regime' itself. Each participant was invited to use the news paper or write some words to symbolize his or her thoughts within the general idea of the revolution.

This project began from the earliest months of the revolution. It was a time when the camera was, and continues to be, one of the revolution's most important weapons. It was also important to work in simple and easily accessible ways while remaining discreet and not attracting too much attention. Participating in this project gave birth to new friendships, as has the revolution itself, in bringing together diverse Syrian individuals and their talks of revolution and freedom with all the complex emotional mix they entail – ecstasy, sadness and determination – they proudly express their allegiance to the one homeland, Syria."
