During a constant advancing technology movement, many citizens of developed countries focus a lot of their time online, where they are engulfed by superficial celebrity gossip, and new must-have items. It has recently been said that the modern society care more about these things than the real wars continuing across the world, and fighting for peace.
The UN has recently estimated that around 400,000 people have died during the last six years of conflict in Syria. Together with this, around 5 million refugees have fled to Europe during this time.
The Syrian city of Aleppo was once populated by over 2 million people, but since the brutal civil war broke out in 2012, the city has completely transformed into one of complete destruction.
Many think that the media purposely choose to hide the real goings on, and the true extremity of the situation is not reported on as it should be in the interest of the people. Some state that during the 2016 elections, despite many issues being argued about, no one asked the candidates exactly what they could do to bring an end to ongoing conflict.
Pair this together with the fact that the president-elect has recently announced plans to increase and update the stockpile of America’s nuclear weapons, ahead of a potential global conflict with Russia, and it seems that it’s not too much of a surprise that some are calling for an anti-war movement.
Many believe that the events that are occurring in Syria are clouded by extreme propaganda, with all sides and stances twisting the truth about what is really occurring there. Whether that be to create fear or fight, it seems that these beliefs lead to a creation of escalated fear to aid the military industrial complex.
Olympia Restaurant in the city of Aleppo has put together an extensive collection of images which demonstrate the devastating destruction on the city with before and after photos. The photographs depict exactly what has happened in the city, showing the pain and suffering that a war can bring upon a city.
The photos are so extreme that when looking at the ‘after’ photos it is actually hard to imagine what the area looked like before, had it not been for the ‘before’ photos.
