revolutionary activist and actor Hassan Hassan
Posted on December 18, 2013 by syriafreedomforever


Translation of the sentence: Most beautiful place in the world. the 
refugee camp

The death of Hassan Hassan, the Palestinian Syrian revolutionary 
activist from Yarmouk refugee camp, at the hands of the security forces 
of the Assad regime after two months of torture was announced to his 
father on December 17 2013. He was arrested early October 2013 when he 
was attempting to leave the camp with his wife, who was released several 
days after her arrest.

Hassan Hassan founded with other friends the group "The Palestinian 
Assembly for Creativity: reaction" as a way to encourage youth artistic 
creation in the camp and also as as explained by Salim Salamah "as a 
reaction to all the mess around him and his world". the camp!

It should be reminded that he was rejected by the selection committee of 
the Higher Institute of Dramatic Arts, composed of pro Assad elitist 
people. For more information of the life of Hassan Hassan please read 
this article Salim Salamah "On Hassan Hassan, or the most beautiful 
place on earth, Yarmouk Camp!" : 

The death of Hassan Hassan is one more symbol of the hypocrisy of the 
Assad regime that claims to support the Palestinian cause. This is in 
addition to the murders and arrests of thousands Palestinian 
revolutionaries participating in the Syrian revolution, the continuous 
siege and bombings of Yarmouk refugee camps, as well as the shelling of 
Palestinian refugee camps in Lattakia, Deraa, Homs, etc.

We should not forget all the acts of solidarity between Palestinians and 
Syrians in the revolutions against the regime. This article written in 
November 2012 shows this 

To come back to the Palestinian camp of Yarmouk in Damascus, it has 
suffered particularly of the repression of the Assad regime since the 
beginning of the revolution in March 2011. . Beginning of November 2013, 
Anwar Raja, a spokesman PFLP-GC pro Assad regime Palestinian group, 
called for the residents of Yarmouk to be evacuated in order to 
 "cleanse" the camp of armed gangs. This call by the PFLP-GC was 
rejected by the residents of Yarmouk, who warn that if no action is done 
to stop the PFLP-GC, a second Naher al-Bared will occur. The refugees of 
Yarmouk described this initiative an attempt to destroy Yarmouk in its 
entirety. The residents of Yarmouk refused the call by the PFLP-GC and 
conducted a sit-in, instead demanding for the crippling siege on the 
camp to be lifted and for those displaced from Yarmouk to be allowed to 
return. They called on all factions of the Palestinian leadership from 
the Palestinian Authority, the PLO, Hamas, and Palestinian Islamic Jihad 
as well as the Palestinian Diaspora to respond to their cries for help 
to prevent the destruction of their home! During their demonstrations 
they chanted "No migration from Yarmouk, only from Yarmouk to 
 Jerusalem!". On December 6 2013, new demonstrations were held in 
Yarmouk camp and throughout Syria under the name "break the siege".

Palestinian and Syrian resilience can be seen once more. The 
Palestinians of Syria have suffered a great deal of repression from the 
Assad security forces and this reminds us that at no moment can the 
liberation of Palestine be based on the "support" of Authoritarian and 
bourgeois regime like the Assad regime. The only way forward and real 
path for liberation must be based on the struggle and liberation of the 
People of the region. The liberation of Jerusalem goes through Damascus, 
Cairo, Amman, Beirut, Ryad, Doha, Tunis, Tehran etc.

This is why all pro-Palestinian movement, which some in the West have 
not taken any clear position regarding the Syrian revolutionary process, 
must be clear in its principles and strategy regarding the Palestinian 
cause and resistance: the liberation of the Palestinian people is linked 
to the liberation of the people of the region. The Palestinians have 
understood it, so try to listen to the people that you pretend to 

In this perspective, the victory of the Syrian revolution will open a 
new resistance front against all the imperialist and regional powers, 
while its defeat will strengthen them. The victory of the Syrian 
revolution will also give a new breath to the revolutionary processes in 
the region and to the Palestinian resistance. The Overthrow of each 
current Arab regime is a step forward to the liberation of Palestine! 
Because Syrians revolutionaries know that their Liberation will never be 
achieved without the liberation of the Palestinian people!

The resistance of Yarmouk and all the other Palestinian refugee camps in 
Syria are part of the Syrian revolution just as the resistance of 
neighborhoods of Aleppo, Homs and other cities are.

The People are One against all the oppressors! Viva all the Oppressed

Long live the Syrian, Palestine and People's revolution. Long live 
revolutionary humanism!
