The news from the Middle East worsens daily into a nightmare scenario—one eerily foretold in 2012 as two young, unlikely Syrian activists launch a radical plan for bringing democracy to their country, besieged by the brutal Bashar al-Assad regime. Under threat of death and armed only with the Internet, they organize when no one else will. CIGI invites you to join us for a presentation of their story, the 2014 documentary Red Lines.
