U.N. Rapporteur: Lift Sanctions on Syria to Help People Rebuild After War & Devastating Earthquakes

Democracy Now! speak with human rights expert Alena Douhan, a United Nations special rapporteur and one of several U.N. experts calling for lifting economic and financial sanctions against Syria to aid recovery efforts following last week’s devastating earthquakes. “The people of Syria are currently deprived of any possibility to rebuild their country, and their country needed reconstruction before the earthquake,” says Douhan.
