Editor’s Note:
I was unable to access SANA today. As you will read below, efforts are underway to shut them down.

I encourage activists to copy and save as many of SANA’s daily reports as they can obtain.

If the imperialists succeed in closing down SANA, these reports will be erased from the internet as was done with Libya’s JANA news. I deeply regret that I did not save JANA’s daily articles.

Videos get deleted but the printed word can be preserved on our websites as a record of what really happened.

If you post important interviews or speeches from President Assad or other representatives from the Syrian government,  please also post the transcripts.
