Freedom has unknown soldiers who usually remain hidden but whose acts can be clearly seen. This is the freedom industry.
As activists say, the making of flags and banners to be distributed among demonstrators is one of the dangerous activities persecuted by the security forces and the ‘Shabiha’. The activists hide their workplace for fear of being caught by the regime.
“The demonstrations that are taking place here need flags and many other things. The goods that are sold here cannot be found in the market,” an anonymous worker said.
“Nowadays, for instance, green and black fabrics cannot be found any longer on the market, and this is something new. This is why we gathered and decided to volunteer and take part in the revolution. We started bringing the needed material for painting and printing and started working here,” he added.
The tailors carry out their voluntary work and sew the flags of the revolution, writing their slogans on the fabric that becomes a banner for their principles.
In order for the world to know about their demands, they express themselves in writing on the banners, in the forms of messages to be read by millions across international TV channels. These works come out from behind the scenes and become one of the pillars of the demonstrations.
