Interview with Raed Fares: The Man Who Built a Civil Society in a War Zone

On Friday, November 23nd, Raed Fares – a friend of ours and a hero of the Syrian revolution – was assassinated in northern Syria by masked gunmen suspected of being affiliated with al-Qaeda.

This episode features an interview we recorded with him at the Oslo Freedom Forum in 2017, in which he told us what the Syrian revolution meant to him, and why he would not give up hope.

Raed will be remembered forever as a visionary, and this interview shows why.

Raed Fares’s Oslo Freedom Forum speech, which is well-worth a watch.
You can also read Iyad’s obituary of Raed in the Washington Post.

This interview is also available on our podcast, with extended comments from Iyad and Ahmed:
