Given the massive US and proxy interventions, anything from the original 'spontaneous' uprising in March 2011 has been drowned, literally, in TOW missiles and foreign mercenaries with unlimited cash..what Syrians are involved are members of Assad's government that thought he'd quickly go the way of Khadafy, and quickly signed up with what they thought would soon be the winning side. 

Whether there was ever an unarmed demonstration that allegedly Assad's forces fired on, or whether the US and Britain fomented and infiltrated and provided weapons right from the beginning, is an open question given what we can glean from abroad.

But whether or not there ever was such an unarmed, 'spontaneous' civilian opposition, , hey, it's LONG gone at this point.  The FSA, according to Franklin Lamb, who has spent a lot of time in Syria and speaks the language, is mostly viewed now by Syrians  as agents of Turkey.
