Graffiti artist Banksy and actor Idris Elba lent their support to an organization dedicated to reminding the world that the Syria crisis is still ongoing, it's still as bad as ever, and it needs to be stopped.
Saturday, March 15, marks the third anniversary of the start of the conflict. That's when protest movements really took hold in the country after 15 teenagers were arrested and tortured for writing anti-government graffiti. (Via BBC)
The organization #WithSyria is commemorating the event with candlelight vigils, urging all sides of the conflict to stop the bloodshed, allow aid organizations into the country and begin peace talks.
