The social activism organization/website Avaaz is going public today with a devastating indictment of what Basher al-Assad and his cronies are doing to the citizens under their heels. The key numbers, according to AP:
- 3,000 Syrians have gone missing since the start of the uprising against Assad four months ago.
- Avaaz estimates that "one person is disappearing in Syria every hour".
- More than 1,600 have been killed, most of them unarmed protesters.
