BANKSY #WithSyria BALLOON GIRL

Banksy teams up with a aid organizations Oxfam, Amnesty International, and Save the Children recreating his piece called Girl with the Red Balloon for a new piece for #WithSyria to raise awareness of the 3 three year conflict in Syria.

On the 6th March 2011 in the Syrian town of Daraa, fifteen children
were arrested and tortured for painting anti-authoritarian graffiti.
The protests that followed their detention led to an outbreak of violence
across the country that would see a domestic uprising transform into a
civil war displacing 9.3 million people from their homes.
