There's no way to make light of the news out of Syria.

The latest: Amnesty International has just published a report finding as many as 13,000 people, mostly civilians, have been killed at Saydnaya Prison over the past 5 years.

"These practices," Amnesty says, "which amount to war crimes and crimes against humanity, are authorized at the highest levels of the Syrian government."

How to help shine a light on Syrian prison conditions

Quick way:  Read and share the Amnesty International report.

Longer way:  Write an email with your concern to exesec.syria@gmail.com, the (believe it or not) official email address of Syria's Permanent Representative to the UN, Bashar Ja’afari.
